I’m a runner. Not a fast one. Not always for really long distance, although sometimes they get pretty long, but I run. It’s how I exercise, it’s how I relax. I’ve written about running as a great place to have a meeting, running to be the best in the world, running to raise money and awareness and running for the last time in your life.
Everyone has a different reason for running. I read an article over the weekend about a man named Bret who runs. It’s what he does. Bret Dunlap suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was hit by a pickup truck at age six. It’s an amazing story, powered by tremendous writing. Bret’s a runner, and Steve Friedman is a writer. Together, they have shared greatness.
