I know I’m never going to be a runner. I have damaged knees, awkward posture, and worse–a bad attitude. I would like to be able to run a mile or two though, without looking like a huge dork or being so out of breath I collapse and die of laziness. I would also like to have a slightly higher chance of outrunning a bear. Right now I would surely be eaten. There is much room for improvement.
I would not have chosen this goal if it weren’t for Austin, a seasoned track star and coach. I’m banking on him for tips and tricks and to tell me how incredibly graceful I’m becoming. He is unaware of his role in this, I’m sure he’ll be so pleased (no).
