VIDAL TORRES
MERRILLVILLE, IN United States
CROWDRISING SINCE: Jan 08, 2017
Stuff About Me:
I STARTED RUNNING FEW YEARS AGO WITH THE INTENTION TO KEEP MY CHOLESTEROL LEVEL UNDER CONTROL TO AVOID TAKING DRUGS THAT WILL DESTROY MY BODY AT FASTER PACE THAN THE CHOLESTEROL ITSELF. I REMEMBER WHEN I WALKED THE FIRST WEEKS (because I begun jus walking at the beggining) IT WAS LIKE MY MIND STARTED TO THINK STRAIGHT AGAIN. I WAS ABLE TO THINK CRITICALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME AND I STARTED TO CREATE PLANS TO CHANGE AND BETTER MY LIFE AROUND. EATING HEALTHIER FOOD, INVOLVING MY FAMILY IN THESE CHANGES, PARTICIPATING IN 5K WALK & RUN EVENTS WERE MY FIRST ACHIEVABLE GOALS. FOR THE NEXT SIX YEARS I KEPT JUST RUNNING 3-4 MILES THE MOST TILL ONE DAY MY SPOUSE JOSEFINA ASKED MY WHY IS THE REASON PEOPLE RUN AND THEN TO MAKE THINGS MORE COMPLICATED SHE ASKED ME DIRECTLY WHY ARE YOU RUNNING? SO I STARTED READING ABOUT DISTANCE RUNNING, SPEED RUNNING AND ALL ABOUT RUNNING. 2015 WAS THE YEAR I WENT OUT OF MY CONFORT ZONE AND STARTED RUNNING 5,6,7 MILES AND IN 2016 I RUN 8K RUN AND 10M RUN WITH A DECENT TIMING WHICH GAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO STARTED THINKING ABOUT RUNNING MY FIRST MARATHON. I RUN MY FIRST MARATHON OCTOBER 18TH 2017 JUST UNDER 5 HOURS (4:58) AND WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING AND REWARDING EXPERIENCE EVER.
