Being a sports-crazy kid I always looked up to sports figures. At first it was Ken Griffey Jr., then Michael Jordan, then once I started running it changed to people like Jim Ryun and Eric Liddell. I wanted to know all about these guys and what it was that made them special at what they did. Now that I have a bit of notoriety I feel obligated to the fan to share all parts of me. I feel like it would be robbing those who are interested in my running to not share what it is that makes me tick and about the journey I am on. I realize that everyone might not agree with everything I believe in, and thats alright. I think we all need to extend the grace to one another to allow people to be who they are and say what makes them who they are.
