Friday Thread: What inspired you to start running?

Good morning, everyone! ☀️ I can’t believe I haven’t already asked this question, but I was wondering — how did you get here? How did you start running in the first place? Was there a challenge you wanted to take on, or a change you wanted to make in your life?

Was it a race you ran where you were a kid, or did you take it up as an adult? What inspired you to lace up your shoes for the first time and go for a run? And what keeps you going?

I’ll share my story in the chat as well, but I can’t wait to hear your story 🙌 — Terrell
