Why I run

11 Apr

People always ask me why I run. Its a thought I ponder from time to time. When I run I feel free. It’s just me, myself, and I. I’m in control and I set the tone. Perhaps I should back up and start at the beginning. I never was an athlete as a child and didn’t play sports. A few years ago I started running just as a form of cardio for working out. A mile or two before my work out led to a whole new world. I remember my first 5k Komen race for the cure. I was so nervous, but my hubby was there supporting my and taking pictures. Then I did another 5k, 10k and a full marathon(Detroit Free Press). My parents drove 7 hrs to see me run. It was such an amazing feeling when I crossed that finish line. No I wasn’t first, but I did it, me, myself and I.
