Getting up to speed on a #run is one of the moments I live for. For me it feels like electricity coursing it’s way through my blood, and the euphoria I get during and after is awesome! ♂️ I believe passionately that there is a sport out there for everyone, and the best person at that sport is the person who is having the most fun! Find the sport that you love and you’ve discovered a world of adventure waiting to be explored.
