Why Do I Like Running?

I find that running is truly my therapy. I've used anti-depressants and went through periods of running and not running and over recent years I have seen the difference that running has in my life.

3 Exercises to Keep You Fit When the Life Gets in the Way

I just want to run pain free

So what’s the point…

I hope I can continue to grow a community with like-minded, hard-working people who just want to run, and talk, and laugh and feel good and not be judged based on their finish time.

I have run a ton of half marathons – I lost count a long time ago. I’ve also run 4 full marathons. In each attempt I had a secret time goal. I just realized after that second one that running so fast that I don’t remember the race, let alone am able to breath or talk, or remember it, as well as the enormous disappointment in not reaching that ‘time goal’,  has shown me that it’s just not that important to me.

I prefer to share my running adventures with people I can get to know – I can run and talk at the same time, even laugh, because I can still catch my breath and if the humidity is too much, as it often is here in the South, then you stop running and basically swim the chosen distance.

So join me as I get back onto the cement and start logging the miles – it won’t be pretty, but I promise it will be fun and maybe a little informative along the way!
