I discovered running fairly late. I was one of those girls who hated PE and found any excuse I possibly could to avoid it. I remember being asked to run a mile around a park near our school and laughing at such a ridiculous notion.

It wasn’t about the exercise, it was about self esteem; or lack of it.
