Right now I'm focusing on preparing for my first Boston Marathon (Apr 20, 2009) - should be fun!
|Why do I run:
I like the feeling of freedom and relaxation that running gives me. Running helps me feel energetic and fit. I also like to have a challenging long-term goal to work on, like preparing for a marathon. It's a lot of fun to be out there at 7 or 8 am with a bunch of other nuts running a race.
|Why I started running:
I wanted to be in good enough shape to play full court basketball for more than 5 minutes! Also, I needed to lose some weight. Now I'm way more into running than I am into basketball!
