Close to the mountains, short commute and great local beers!
When I started running and what got me started:
In 2000, while living in Austin, TX (ie, flat!), I needed some way to stay in shape for backpacking. Turns out that running (on flat trails) prepares one's cardiovascular system nicely, but doesn't prepare one's legs for slogging weight up and down mountains.
What does running mean to me:
Exercise, time to think.
