When I started running and what got me started:
In 1985 I weighed about 25 pounds more than I do now. I had to do something to exercise and lose weight, so I started running because I lived a couple of blocks from the N.C. State University track.

It's a chance to get away from all my worries and problems. It makes me set goals and enjoy accomplishments.

Self-confidence

I ride a unicycle and am a member of a roller coaster nut club
