As for me, if I didn’t run I seriously don’t think I would enjoy life as much as I do. It keeps me healthy, it makes me strong, it empowers me, and it keeps me sane.

Also, if I didn’t run I wouldn’t have the awesome network of friends that I have now. Runners are blessed with a welcoming, accepting group of people from every walk of life.  We’re all very different people who share this one trait that makes us all family. That’s pretty cool.
