What prompted you to start working out?
Being a twenty-something can lead to a lot of bad choices and hard times to struggle with. Add to that a friend's tragic passing and my parents rough divorce, and I just had to find something to get me out of bed. It was a very hard time, but there was something comforting about only worrying about getting one foot in front of the other, one day at a time.
How did you start?
I've never been very athletic, so running seemed like the only thing that was easy enough to try. I had no idea how hard it actually was going to be, or how that would make it more rewarding. I still vividly remember the first time I ran a whole mile without stopping, and how insanely happy it made me. From that
