Running up, over and through the cogs

Running Saves

Running saved my life.

At a time when I really didn’t know how to be happy with myself, I looked to exercise to help me manage my stress, to temper my depression.  My dad had always been a runner, so I thought I would give it a shot.

It was my very last hope.

I started out slow.  But determined.  And it didn’t take long for the depression to disappear, for the stress to never be an issue, for me to know joy and peace for the very first times.  Before you could spit, running became synonymous with me.

I am running.

Running is me.
