In 2002, 2004 & 2006 I went to Kursk, Russia and stayed with a wonderful girl named Anna.
We have kept in touch. She visited in 2002, 2003, twice in 2012 and once in 2013.
In September 2012 when she came to visit, I was running a race and she wanted to come watch.
She was very excited about the race, took lots of pictures and even a video of me running.
This is the email that I just got from her:
You’ll be surprised to learn I took up running as well. I think it happened largely due to my watching you run that early early morning in the park.
In the summer I used to run in the park, but not it’s getting chillier. I bought a fitness club pass and yesterday was my first day of running indoors.
Now isn’t that cool??
Happy Running! Have you ever inspired someone to start running?
