I am so thankful for running today. I’m thankful that I can physically run and also that there’s a place for me to run out here.
Running has been a part of my life since I first began preparing to take my first APFT in the hopes of getting a scholarship to pay for my college. I ran cross-country in college and when I finished school, the running continued. I ran my first road race at the Army 10-Miler when I was a junior, and again the next year as a senior. I ran my first half-marathon after graduation and then my first marathons the following year.
I’ve run an ultra (which was awful, by the way, not sure if I will take that back on), several more marathons, and dabbled in triathlon. Running is still my favorite.
And right now these are my favorite shoes.
