2. I agree 100%!

When I was in junior high/high school I was literally told to my face that I was not nor would I ever be one of the cool kids. I was nothing but a worthless faggot and the sooner I would die the better off the world would be. Needless to say the depression took hold of me and I started thinking maybe they were right.

A couple of years after I graduated I started running for my health and I loved the way it made me feel. Over the last several years I've been running competitively and my wall is full of gold medals. I can run a half marathon and my heart rate will go back to normal within minutes of finishing. I have a resting heart rate of 51 and I'm 53 years old.

Every now and then I see someone I went to school with and I can't help but think how miserable their lives must be. Several of them are 250-300 lbs. and look like they haven't eaten a vegetable in years. I've found that life really does get better with age and you get out of it what you put into it. I'm living proof.
