Lots has gone down hill for me lately. but I did run my first marathon about 5 months ago, after reading The Cool Impossible about 4 months before that. 3 days later I crashed my motorcycle and wound up in a wheelchair for a month and almost had 2 twos amputated, lost the girl I thought I was gong to marry, my company is in the red, and I can't find a job in my field my field or with any real responsibility or pressure. That being said, today is the first day I put on my full running gear and I ran 3 miles at a measly 7:40 pace. But I'm back at it, and things are going to get better. My family, friends, and running are all I need. If I can do it, so can you! Hope this inspire you to not give up...not yet! Share your story and battle with me!

Yes, life is a hill. Up, down, up down, every minute, every day, so many things can change in a few seconds. In the midst of this constant upheaval, puttting on one's running gear and saying hello to the sun is a simple joy on which we can rely.
Best to you.
