So why is it that you run?

Hello World,

I get asked this question all the time and the answer changes all the time... The short answer is to GET THE HECK OUT OF THE HOUSE. Not that I don't love my house and the people inside :) but this is the one thing that I do truly for me and maybe for others too if you consider that I would drive them CRAZY!

But really, and this 'shout out' goes especially to all of the new runners and those thinking about jumping back in. It's a sport for all. Start small and think big! Three things came together in a relatively short time span that propelled me to be the runner I am now:
  1. 3 kids and my first pair of mom jeans
  2. making a life list of things I wanted to do before I croak
  3. 911 which made me realize that I should get started

So it all started with 15 or 20 miles a week 10 years ago and now I'm running around the world. Awesome...

Cheers! RunningBrooke

Hey MCM Mama-
I've been way too distracted but back on now! If you ever need a marathon mate for your 50 states, let me know. If you are a friend of Cathleen's, you are a friend of mine... I'm running Steamtown in the fall, the JFK 50 and then the Goofy Challenge in January....
Cheers! RunningBrooke
