Introduction I began running on August 12, 1966. I thought I should run a couple of times before the first cross country practice entering high school. I have pretty much kept with it since. There were times when I was fast, skinny, slow, old, injured, delirious, pained, jubilant, joyful, stressed and everything else one can imagine. Most often several interplay on the same run. I've run more than 114,000 miles and I am proud of that number. It shows a long term commitment to something that has given me a way to look at the world I would have never possessed had I not chosen this path. Now that I have hit the 100,000 mile mark before the Mayan Calendar ends it's anyone's guess as to what is next... Maybe 200,000 kilometers...
