WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?

What motivates me is that people look at me for inspiration since I have become a runner. I became to deal with a lost of a love one( my brother). Running was how I dealt with his death. Also it's how I deal with my dysthymia ( mild depression) . I didn't know I had it until I did research on my brothers death. He was an alcoholic and that was he's way to deal with the ups and down of life. I found out I had the same symptoms too but now I combat that with running. Once family, friends, and people heard about how I became a runner, love ones and friends look at me as an inspiration now and now I'm motivated not to let them down!
