Yes, this is what I actually look like when I run. Tobacco Road Half Marathon.

A few years ago, I ran a community 5K with a couple of my friends. I came in last out of all of us even though my one friend wasn’t feeling very well that day. He beat me by a lot. Later, he found out he had the swine flu.

So, literally a dude with swine flu runs faster than me. But, you know what? At least I ran it.

And, even when I get rejection after rejection, at least I’m writing and putting myself out there. I have a new tips article at The Review Review that speaks to both runners and writers.
