I love being a runner. I also backpack, hike, garden, and work full time.
|Why do I run:
For pleasure, for fun, for the feeling of freedom to do what I want. It's really part of who I am and my day isn't complete without it.
|Why I started running:
I took it up as an exercise to lose weight when I was 19 because I'd always enjoyed running when playing as a child and so I thought I might stick with it. I did, and have been running ever since.
