I woke up this morning and realized I may be having too much fun.

And what, you may ask, is my problem?

I'm a huckin' runner, an easily distracted individual who negates responsibilities and throws caution to the wind just to run. It's an impulse, like spotting a trailside boulder on a run and catching big air off it, just for fun. It gets to be habit over time.

It all started years ago. I met this woman who was a runner, so I became a runner, too, and we've been running ever since. Now I find my days are consumed with running. When I'm not running, I'm cross training. I write about running, do paintings of runners, take pictures of runners and plan vacations around running. I run for my money and give others a run for theirs.
