7 years of running

7 years back to this very day May the 20th, then 38 years old, I went for a run. I promptly passed out in Dallas heat but went back the next morning and eventually fell in love with it. In 7 years, I have made some of my best friends on the road, enjoyed some of the best scenic beauties in over 10 countries, learnt (again) how to run barefoot (and then minimalist), raised money for over 50 charities, ran thru nearly 20 pairs of shoes, singlehandedly propped up Starbucks quarterly results 🙂 …. Would not have happened without my wife who got me into it in the first place and some early encouragement from John McGehee (who runs better than most I know at the age of 63!!!)
