One of the reasons I hated running as a kid was the fact that I was almost always last. The shame of not just not winning, but being the final person to cross the line really got to my me. I don’t like to admit it, but I’m a fairly competitive person, and losing just wasn’t going to work for me. Quitting was much easier to do than lose, and I quit more things than I am proud of as a child because I wasn’t winning as much as I wanted to. So, this caused almost two decades of an unhealthy relationship with physical activity.
I never anticipated my running journey would have been as "successful" as it has been so far. Running a mile? Impossible at first. Running a 5k at one point seemed like the biggest mountain ever, a 10k the same, and then the idea of a Half Marathon was unachievable. Until I put the work in.
