|Why do I run:
I love the challenge and the pain. I love getting home after an especially hard long run and feeling my body vibrating and then slowly fall back into its normal rhythm. It's a kind of high.
I love watching the numbers and seeing them improve.
|Why I started running:
I tried as hard as I could to destroy my body for 20 years. I was a fat, smoking, useless turd. I finally got bored of that, and started to turn it around. First I got into weightlifting, and then quit smoking not long after. Then picked up running and lost almost 100 pounds. I am a new person, and loving life.
