I have been into sports my entire life though I always dreaded the part of practice where we had to "run". Most of my history is in Soccer, Wrestling, Weight Training, and some occasional Baseball/Softball. Ice Hockey, or Basketball.
Fast-forward to 2011, my wife Jessica encouraged me to try running with her. At first I dreaded the idea of intentionally making myself run, though I slowly pushed myself through the first 6-9 months of building up my cardio vascular system and stamina. These first steps proved critical to get past as it provided me more than enough opportunities to just give it up, and made the transition to the next step that much more daunting.
However, I ran my first 5K in July of 2011 and then another in September 2011. I could finally finish a race on my feet that was over 2 miles. From then on, I began to embrace the joy of running, the individual training, the flexibility, and the total impact it has on my health. In February of 2013 I completed a 20 mile race in Martha's Vineyard. While I finished dead last, just 2 years earlier I couldnt even do 3 miles without stopping to walk. Running is now something I hope to do for the rest of my life
