I ran a marathon in 2012. It was one of the hardest physical challenges I’ve ever undertaken. It chewed me up and spit me out. I was injured before I got to the starting line and frankly shouldn’t have attempted to run, but a combination of stubbornness, the fact that it was ON my 25th birthday, and the sheer amount of cash I had spent on the weekend (hotel, food, transportation…even with the $150 race fee gifted to me, it was an expensive trip) worked together and I did it. 401 more words

When I moved my home to Indiana, I found myself undecided about what sports to pay attention to and which teams to root for.  In time, my interests changed to long-distance running as a participation sport and IndyCar racing as a spectator sport.   94 more words
