Why I Took the Pledge

Because I compete for more that just for myself.
Because I have kids that I coach who look up to me, fellow running community members that believe in me, sponsors who support me, teammates that depend on me, a cat that hopes I bring her home the good food, competitors whom I respect, race directors who believe in me. Because the very thing I am running in, the mountains and trails, are natural and I choose to be the same.
