Brian did not like running for a LONG TIME. It was either punishment for misbehavior, a part of something he loved (soccer, or staying in shape for wrestling by joining the high school XC team), or seemed like an inefficient way to get places.
During and after PT school (yup, he has a doctorate), Brian ran for fitness, mental health, and way to learn about the regions he was living in. With the brazen naivety of youth, he signed up for spot on a charity team for the 2015 Boston Marathon to check off the feat from his bucket list. From there on out, it has been a love story full of trials and tribulations, wild adventures, neon clothing, and amazing friendships.
