"Running is not just an exercise, a routine, a workout, or a weight loss fad. Running is breaking down barriers I never knew existed. Running is pushing myself past my limits and breaking free of my old habits. Running is the blisters on my feet, the blood through my socks, the pain in my chest, the sweat from my face, the burning in my lungs. Running is my escape to my zone where you cannot reach me or touch me. Running is so much more to me than you can ever imagine." Author unknown.
