Since I started playing soccer in middle school, I've always tried to maintain an active lifestyle. It's a key ingredient of my life that truly makes me feel magical. Sure there are times that I'd rather be a sloth, but I never get that nice endorphin high when I sloth for too long. Breaking a sweat on the other hand? ALWAYS rewarding. I grew up watching my dad compete in marathons/half marathons and I thought he was out of his mind. Sooo, naturally I decided to dip my hand in the craziness starting in 2014 and I've completed 7 half marathons since. I've gotta say, you feel pretty fucking accomplished every single time you cross that finishline. [and shout out to those that have conquered the full 26.2 miles.. YOU GUYS ARE BEASTS!] I'm always game for trying new ways to sweat because I'm a human that likes variety, but running/indoor cycling/yoga might be coming in at a three-way tie for my favorite therapeutic forms of exercise.
