  1. I have always been a runner. My first track meet was in grade school. My dad was a football player, but my mom was a really good runner who had all of the school distance records. Growing up I always wanted to break her records. Gave me some motivation. :-)

  2. I love it! (Both that you are an ambassador, and that your aha moment was more of an aha journey!)

  3. I used to HATE running, absolutely despised it with a passion. We used it as punishment for soccer and basketball for years. In 2010 I started to train for triathlon and running was by far my least favorite discipline.

    One day, I was running on University of Buffalo’s indoor track and I remember the point at which a huge smile came over my face and my laps felt effortless. I ran for what seemed like forever and since then, running has been a way of life for me. Although I prefer the trails, I’ll always strap on my shoes and attack whatever terrain I can find.

    • thanks for stopping by and it sounds like we both had the same assessment of running until that switch-over occurred…lol! i think it’s awesome that u’re a total running convert now and let’s have a moment of respect for the track at Univ. of Buffalo. ;)

  4. Love this! I think my Aha! Moment had to be when I made the decision to lose the weight. I wanted to be healthy and start making healthy decision. So I kicked myself in the, you know what, and got off my rump and just did it! :)

    • glad u like and YOU are such an inspiration missy for how much you have taken your life my the reins and made it so much healthier, and dare i say happier! keep up the great work! :)

    Hey Caitlin…I knew I was a runner when I was training for my half marathon and…well, how shall I say this, there’s no kleenex out on the road…I felt like that made me hard core…
