My Daily Run Commute – Melissa in Washington, DC

Thanks to all of the support and comments from some great Redditors yesterday!  And we have our first guest post!

I started running as a challenge from my sister to run a half marathon last October.  I started and loved it, but pushed myself too far too quickly and had a knee injury.  I did not get a chance to run that first race and I have held a grudge ever since.  I started running home when I wasn’t working out because I “didn’t have time”.  I had to find the time and thus the idea of running home was born!  It really takes me just about the same time to run home as it would have to take one bus to another bus and then home.  I see other runners and they make me smile.  I see other runners with a backpack on and it makes me proud!

Here’s Melissa’s run commute from work to home.
