Run The Edge and Run the Year have caused me all kinds of issues! Instead of enjoying lazy weekends, I now feel compelled to be more active and find myself running races. I now have difficulty finding even the slightest bit of time to be lazy because I'm too busy meeting mileage goals. Instead of ``vegging`` on the couch I now find myself engaged in meaningful online discussions about running shoes, heart rates, upcoming races, PRs, compression socks, and a myriad of other running-related topics. I have surely disappointed the junk food manufacturers because my junk food intake has so significantly decreased. And the final ``issue`` is that I am at a total loss for words because I cannot describe how wonderful it is to find myself surrounded by so many supportive people, many of whom are now among my closest of friends. Yes, Run the Edge and Run the Year have caused me numerous issues! And I love them for it!!!
