I can’t believe I’m actually starting a blog about me. Yes, me as a runner. None of my friends would have thought I had it in me to actually begin writing about my passion for running.
I’ve been running for as long as I can remember. I’ve done all those marathons you see on flyers and commercials, plus so much more. I seriously think I first learned to run rather than walk, at times. At the very least, that’s what my mother told me.
Running has been very instrumental in my life. It took me out from the streets and placed me on racing tracks and on a fitness-related career. It is essentially what I was meant to do the rest of my life. I can’t imagine not ever putting on my running shoes and just feeling the wind breeze through my hair as I pass by road after road with the intent to finish what I have started long ago.
This blog is about me, Michael Del Monte. It will also be about running because that’s essentially who I am and what defines me.
