Nine years ago today I ran for the very first time. I was at the Outer Banks and decided to give running a shot. I ran 2 miles--from our rental to the pier and back--and about keeled over. I had never been so winded or wiped out.
The next morning I could hardly descend the stairs, my leg muscles were so sore. But descend those stairs I did, and ran the 2 miles again.
I was at the beach for 13 days, and ran 10 of them What a life-changing event.
