Living in Southern California, an Ohio transplant via a short year in England, I am here to record my adventures with my Son and hopefully leave him nuggets of wisdom along the way.

This Blog originally started as a record of his life through my eyes. But like most of us, the person I was when I started this is not the same person sitting here today, typing away. I have called southern California home now for over two decades and find it hard to think of anywhere else as home. Before I know it, I will have lived here longer than anywhere else in my life.

Being a husband and father has changed so many aspects of my life. Reconnecting with my faith a few years ago has also changed so many aspects of my life as well. Don’t get me wrong, I am still the same swearing, fun loving guy but just looking through the world through different eyes that the guy who wrote the italicized text below.

I hope you enjoy our adventures and continue to follow our story. And I swear I will one day become a regular runner again (really, I mean it!).

My Name is William Gronek, and for the past 15 years i have called Southern California home. I am married to a great girl and we are expecting our first child in April 2012. It is because of this I truly am a “new dad in training”.

I am also a runner. for anyone who knows me, I talk A LOT about my running. so you will see posts about my training for whatever event I have on the horizon.

As I think of more to add to this page, I will.


Well, our son Xavier was born April 12th, 2012. With the first anniversary of this Blog approaching quickly and his first Birthday shortly behind, I find this blog ever changing.


Well, our little guy is approaching seven years old and the adventures continue (for all of us!). Thankyou for reading, please subscribe/follow and feel free to comment!
