THIS VERY LONG PIECE was written by Steve Friedman and appeared in Runner's World, May 3, 2013. I read it back then and was moved. It was one of a couple writings that helped keep Earned Runs a goal for me. I did not forget the story but could not recall it's title or a detail that would help me easily find it again. I did eventually locate it though. Take the time to become inspired.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. In 1978 I began participating in 10K road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health and longevity.
