40 Years of running!

I just remembered that it is pretty much the 40th anniversary of my first run! I started in early 1975, where I was looking towards my third summer of hitchhiking out west to hike the back-country in the US and Canadian national parks. And in 1975, I wanted to be fit from the first day, and not huff-and-puff my way through the mountains for weeks before it became enjoyable. So I started running, from my room in Gainesville's Green Latrine. I figure that I've run about 11,000 times over the ages. 
Here's me finishing today's run, feeling surprisingly OK
I owe so much to the experiences that running has given me over the many years!
