I Started Running Because..

I started running because of my eating problems but it turned into a beautiful thing. When I run it's amazing. It's just me and the ground. Everything just gets left behind. When I race...and beat the time before...it's a great feeling. It's kind of hard to explain but I really started to love running my freshman year. My coaches were supportive and fast and my team mates were fun. We would have practice every day,spaghettie dinners on fridays,and races on saturdays. It takes up a lot of time but I wouldn't change a second of it.

well i'm glad that you like to run. running can be exhilarating and make you experience nature by way of the breath, and inhale what you know to be a better existence that is all around you. this is so on nature trails even more. running is a glorious activity because it makes you know your body. in a rhythm. <br />
i don't run. i don't run because i enjoy other activities.

Good for you 'Eskimo' - you are the beginnings of a wonderful person :o)
