A few year ago I took up running. At the time, I couldn't run a single mile without nearly collapsing. I chose running for a few reasons:
- its simplicity
- its portability
- its roots in nature
We all agree it's important to get exercise. But we don't agree on how to do it. For me, a gym is the least desirable location to get exercise, equipment takes a lot of space, it's expensive, and its hours and location are not versatile. That said, I do go to a gym during winter months, because the climate I live in is not conducive to running. However, my passion is an evening run with brilliant sunset colors illuminating my path. Running leaves me energized, focused, and happy. All requirements for the amount of time and energy I pour into my family, my home, and our commitment to real food.
