Posted by BoutwithGout on Thursday, April 17, 2014, In : Event 

Glad that I was able to run the Seahawks 12K this April, despite having no rigorous and systematic preparation leading up to the longest race I have ever done.  The only training I did was a 4-mile run about a month before the race.  I just simply couldn't muster up the energy and couldn't find the time to run long distance.  I was running 2-3 miles almost 5x a week for several months so I guess that was helpful.  I wasn't sure how my feet and stamina would react when I jump from a 3miler to ...

About Me


I'm a blogger hit with gout early when I was in my 20s (now a couple of decades ago). But I just can't give up biking, running, hiking, and just being able to be out and about exploring places. As an office worker, an organizational psychologist/data analyst, I tend to be sedentary so getting up and about is a must. But as a psychologist and data geek, I'm interested in the psychological aspects of gout as well as the data. And really, I just want to share what I learn about gout, what works for me (and doesn't work). Gout is a very personal battle and each individual is unique. I'm not an MD, so please take heed and always check with your physician.
