I've never been a fast runner, but I've always enjoyed distance running. Maybe it's the feeling of accomplishing a goal mileage, but I think it's mainly because I like clearing my head.
When I was going through my brain injury rehab there were days I just wanted to clear my head and get my thoughts together. Before the accident I use to do this by running or going for a motorcycle ride. I wasn't able to do either of those things for a while, which was frustrating.
Once I finished my rehab I was excited to hit the pavement and start building my muscle back up so I could attempt to run. I then found out I needed an ankle surgery and about 4 more months of physical therapy.
So when we rang in the 2019 new year I decided one of my resolutions was to run a 1/2 marathon. I called my friend Zack and asked if he wanted to join. I figured if I signed up and paid, I would hold myself accountable and push myself. Never stop pushing yourself to grow.
