    My View: I completed the Fools Run 5k!

    I was a runner in my youth, participating in track and cross country. Knee injuries put my running career to a halt in college but I still fondly remember that feeling of flying while out running.

This was the end of February and I hadn’t been training so I was a little nervous but eager to run again.
