I was teary eyed when I read this blog post. This was posted by a runner at SparkPeople.com.
Here is an excerpt:
"If you were motivated enough to train for and participate in an organized running event, then you were a runner. Anyone willing to risk public failure in order to be a part of the running community--no matter what his or her pace per mile might be--was a runner. Period."
It is a must read!
I AM A RUNNER!
