I became a runner because I spent my entire childhood running laps because I was in trouble. I just figured that I'd skip the part where I smart off first and just go straight to the running.
kidding - sort of
I do remember the first day I decided to actually run. I laced up what I'm sure were cross trainers and took off like the house was on fire. I remember lying there on the next door neighbor's lawn thinking, "this is nuts, people do this for 26.2 miles how is that possible."
I did eventually figure out what to do. Now I'm doing speed work and it reminds me of that day.
