Background

I choose to run because of the test that it gives me physically and mentally. I do not choose to run and race competitively against others but I do choose to challenge myself and help support very good causes.
I begin to running back in 1993 to help rehab an ACL repair to my knee that I suffered playing in church league basketball. This knee injury was the worse injury that I had ever suffered over the years and was difficult to bring myself back. Being from a smaller town in Arkansas I did not have the access to gym facilities that you find in the larger urban areas. It took a good 4 years for me to gain the full range of motion back in my knee and to be able to kneel on the knee without pain. During the 4 years I would run sporadically to help build the muscles in my leg back. While running to help rehabilitate this injury I did not realize the calming and peace that running brings to you mentally.
I completed my first 5k event in 1999 in a very small local event in my hometown in Arkansas. This was my first taste to competitive running and I found that I enjoyed the comrade and competiveness found at the events. I did not do any training for this event but I found that I could compete in 5k events without any training.
Over the next five to six years I signed up for and competed in only a handful of 5k events and one 5 mile event. Again, I did the events without doing in real training for them. Also, during this time I got into cycling and into the gym
