How’s has running changed your life? I’m not talking about how it may have helped you improve your health, become more confident, or the like. Nope. I want to know if and when your love of running, in whatever form, has been a deciding factor in a major life decision. Did you choose your college because you could run on the cross country team? Have you ended a relationship… or gotten married because of running? Have you ever moved across town… or across the country to be closer to better running grounds? Ever taken or not taken a job based on how it would affect your running? With how much iRunFar readers love to run, I’m sure there are some interesting stories out there. Please share!
