What’s your running story?
I went through a divorce in 2004, and lived with a friend of mine for a few months. He encouraged me to start running, at first I had no interest, but after going to a few races with him on Sat. mornings I was hooked. The runners were so friendly , welcoming ,and having a good time. I also needed some form of exercise , and had time on my hands.
