The First Shall Be Last

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.
