Posted by in Your Stories | No Comments

Morte.rimorsi.delusioni.paure.domande senza risposte.malattia…….e poi cominci a correre. Il cuore batte più forte poi si accorda con il tuo passo. Ogni fibra del tuo corpo è concentrata sulla corsa. E per un poco tornano i pensieri positivi di quando eri innocente.di quando credevi di essere una brava persona.solo per poco certo ma basterà per affrontare la […]

The Love of the Run

Running is so much a part of me after all of these years. The feeling of power and strength in a body that has been shaped and molded into a runners form, from thousands of miles on the road and injuries healed. Anger that has diffused because I was able to run hard enough, sadness […]

Running as a Measurement

At the urging of our school’s cross country coach who was looking for bodies to add to that season’s dwindling middle school team, I reluctantly accepted my tank-top jersey and short shorts and started an ill-fated first attempt at running. Not more than a month later I ended my running career for lack of any […]

Power to Push

What moves me? My answer used to be simple. I was striving to run in the Olympic Marathon Trials and I got pretty close running by a 2:26 in the Vermont City Marathon. I was making steady progress and as a result it was easy to stay motivated, log hundred mile weeks, complete speed and […]

It’s Never Just Running

I’ve been running for 9 years. Running moves me in the most impeccable way. I run through the different shades of the world. Through the highs and lows. Through the good and bad. Running is an art, a best friend, a never-ending road, full of never ending stories. Running moves you, it holds you, pulls […]

Cancer Survivor Outruns Death

In about 2005 when I was 46, I had testicular cancer and had an orchiectomy surgery. I began walking to my sedentary job as a physician when I was 47. After about a year of that I decided to try running to work. The furthest I could run at the time was about 200 meters […]
