Here's his story.
Running is a huge challenge within itself and we are tested and rewarded by every run….so why do you run?
For personal health and fitness. Or alone time.
For the challenge. Or comraderie.
For the outdoors and fresh air. Or exploration
I run for all these reasons, but the main reason I run is because I can. I grew up very active but I never considered myself a runner. In the recent years, running kind of fell in my lap because it was the only way I could stay active amongst family, work, and life. All I needed was a pair of running shoes (and maybe a change of clothes) and I was good-to-go. Even though it was out of convenience that I started running, I now reap the rewards of keeping active, having me-time, being able to see the world from a humbling perspective, and doing epic sh!t with the awe-inspiring running community.
But what makes running meaningful is that I am able to run for more than just myself. Having a daughter who suffers from a muscle disorder makes you appreciate the little things in life. She has been a fighter and illuminates a positive spirit even through all she goes through. She is a true example of hope…and my hero. And I now run to bring sMILEs to my MDA (My Daughter Ava), raise awareness for the MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association), and motivate and inspire others along the way. #concreterunners #thespeedproject
