I'd hit that.
I already knew I was good, and figured it was a good way to meet people since i was at a new school
now i know that i am very good for my age and my main goal is to get better, be the best, and WIN (at my meets of course), not the olympics lol
Um im not exactly sure how i started running but in seventh grade the coach came into my class and was just looking for people to sign up for cross country. I had no idea what it was and I'd never even heard of it before but I had been wanting to be in a sport so i signed up and have loved it ever since.
Hee. This is embarrassing.
I was kind of dating this boy a few months back, and during one conversation, he asked me if I exercised. I was all, "Oh yeah. I run. I'm a runner. Yup. Running running running. Blah Blah Lyingcakes."
So then I went for a few runs just so I wouldn't feel like such a dirty liar.
But then he wanted to run with me. Ack. So after our horrible run together, I had to do something to not humiliate myself like that again. Thus the search for a runner's website and my resulting membership here.
The boy is long gone, but the running has stuck, which is awesome.

The only season left between Football and basketball . I ran a fast mile in gym class in the 8th grade and it just so happened that the gym teacher was the track coach and he pretty much forced me to run and now i am stuck
I started running shortly after Jock Semple tried to rip the bib number off KV Switzer in the Boston Marathon. I must have started out of spite, but it morphed into a lifelong relationship. When I was growing up, there was no Title 9. The Switzer incident sent me over the edge. I wondered later why he had not been charged with assault and battery.
