Running Love (Why do you love it? When did you fall in love with it? What do you love about it?): I love running because it’s a great way to push my limits physically and mentally. It’s one of my ways of staying grounded. I first fell in love with it when I was an NCAA college basketball player. During my last couple of years as a player I started cross training more heavily with running as way to improve my game on the court. Running ended up giving me so much more than just a way to improve my game on the court. Running became an escape and a way for me to healthily challenge myself. It became an active meditation.
