But now I see it as an activity that is all mine. I run for me; not because it makes me size 8 jeans-ready, or so I can load up on beer and pizza on the weekends without feeling guilty, but because I am a warrior when I run. I am Darryl Hannah in Clan of the Cave Bear (crappy movie but you get the idea). No kids, no husband, no boss. ME. Kicking butt. Pushing my limits. It reminds me of who I really am: awesome, capable, apocolypse-ready woman.
