Starting to jog again. Gained 20 lbs over past 12 months.
|Why do I run:
Competition is primary motivation for running as much as I do now. However, there have been several periods since I started when I haven't run as much but kept at it because of the physical and mental health benefits it provides. I will continue as long as I'm able for those reasons.
|Why I started running:
By the time I finally took that first jog down the canal banks of Phoenix I was 14 years out of high school and a mess. I was hoping that running would help turn things around and it did. I've been at it ever since that day, more than 30 years ago.
