Take It and Run Thursday: When Did You Become A Runner?

Take it and run thursday This week's Take it and Run Thursday is sponsored by  Marlene from the blog Mission to Another Marathon.  And she wants to know:

When did you know you had become a runner? Was there a defining moment, or was it a gradual progression over time?

I often hear people talking about a recent run they have completed, and then they say, "But I'm not a real runner."

So what makes you a runner? Is it going to a "real" running store to by actual "running" shoes? Signing up for your first race? Achieving a certain distance or time?

For me, I think it came down to my priorities. When I realized that I was scheduling my life around running and not the other way around, I realized "Hey, I'm a runner!" And it's been downhill ever since. :) (Not entirely downhill...)

Here is a little slideshow with a glimpse of my running.
