FAQ about the Rum Runner!*
1) How did you get the title for your blog?
Historically speaking, a Rummrunner was one who smuggled booze illegally across the Canadian/American border during the era of Prohibition. As a history major, I always found this period of American history fascinating and wrote many a term paper on it.
Personally speaking, I drink rum, a LOT of rum, and run, A LOT of miles. Therefore, I am the self-proclaimed Rum Runner.
2) Are you an alcoholic?
No, I have a healthy respect for rum.
3) Admitting it is always the first step…
I can quit at any time!!
4) Why do you run?
I run to calm my anxiety. I run so I can eat crap. I run to drink more beer. I run for a natural high. I run to see my friends. I run to enjoy nature. I run to chase away the demons. I run to find myself.
Most importantly though, I run for MEDALS!! Seriously, it’s all for shiny medals.
5) Your blog is aesthetically displeasing. What the hell is wrong with you?
I’m a runner and writer, not a graphic designer or photographer. Deal with it.
