In elementary school being the fastest kid on the block gave you street cred so I ran. I joined cross country and track in middle school and kept going, but I was never even the fastest on my team. I tried pretty hard though, 12 years later I'm still doing it and running big races a couple times per year.

I like to run in general - it gets me pretty fired up. Signing up for a race and then training like a madman for 4-5 months and SEEING the results when the time comes is one of the most fulfilling things. It keeps be grounded through all this technology stuff.
