I’ve run all my life. For me, it’s the challenge of the distances. I was talked into the Indiana Monumental Half-Marathon, and I overcame something I never thought I could accomplish there. It’s calming, the thought process, and it’s a way of life. As an attorney, I think I’ve thought of more opening and closing statements while I run. During the Mill Race Half-Marathon, coming over the bridge, I just had a huge smile on my face.
