My First Marathon, Chicago 2014

Why I ran…

I can’t remember a time that I did not run since high school…a couple of miles here and there for exercise.  I ran my first 5K in Maryland in 2002, but I didn’t start running races regularly until 2009 when a few good friends and I started running and completed a half marathon in Baltimore.  1,724 more words
