Running has always been safe haven for over 25 years.  I see running like an old friend that is always there when I am ready to release on how good or bad my day was.  People ask me "why do you run. . .so much?" and my answer remains the same. . . life hands me SO MUCH daily and the only way for me to get through each situation and make something good out of it is to run.  It's better to have a healthy addiction than a bad one. . .for the most part, LOL!  I hope I never have to give it up but if I do, at least I know that I have had a good, motivating friend who has been consistent and has helped shape me into who I am today.  I love running. . . 4U. . .Happy Running!
