<b>1.Why do you run?</b><br>
Running started out as a way for me to get fit and lose some weight. I started walking/jogging about 3 years ago. In that time running helped my quit cigarettes and lose about 100 pounds.<br>
Now I run to maintain my fitness level, to chase after those PRs in races, but mostly because it makes me feel free.<br><b>2. What is your greatest accomplishment?</b><br>
Fist in my family to attend University<br><b>3. What is your motto/theme song?</b><br>
I do not really have a theme song, but if I did maybe Big Audio Dynamite, <i>Rush</i> would be up there<br><b>4. How do you deal with bad runs?</b><br>
I forget about them<br><b>5. Do you reward yourself for good runs? How?</b><br>
No rewards, the feelings I get from them are sufficient reward<br><b>6. Who do you admire most?</b><br>
My sister, the supernurse<br>
7. What is the greatest advice you have ever received?<br>
You are <i>entitled</i> to nothing, work for it<br><b>8. What do wish you had learned younger?</b><br>
Self worth<br><b>9. What do you wish you could do but can't?</b><br>
Play a musical instrument<br><b>10. How would your friends describe your personality?</b><br>
Non standard, funny, introverted<br><b>11. What do you wear running? favorite outfit?</b><br>
Blue shorts, race Tee I got from a 10k at West Point for short runs, blue tech shirt for long runs.<br><b>12. What has been your favorite race?</b><br>
Hartford Marathon and the Harry Chapin Memorial Run Against Hunger 10k in ‘06<br><b>13. Do you have a goal race right now?</b><br>
Not identified yet; a half or full in the winter for sure<br><b>14. What makes you happy?</b><br>
Long walks with my daughter, spending goofy time with my SO, gardening<br><b>15. Tell us one interesting thing about you that you haven't said (at least not often) on this forum in the past.</b><br>
I had an invisible imaginary friend when I was a boy. Oh wait, I have them now too!<br><b>16.

Congratulations on your weight loss and quitting cigarettes. Neither of those is easy, both together is quite an accomplishment.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
