"I run to burn off the crazy."
“Why should I quit [yoga]? As long as I can do it and be a help to someone else, I’ll just stay as long as I can. I get a joy out of seeing someone learning.”
"[Dance is] good for my soul. It's good for me that I can do it. So why not?"
"I guess I do it because it makes me happy. It makes me feel normal and whole. It is difficult to live with a disease where your own body is fighting against yourself. So when I am running I feel I am battling that, I feel like I am safe from myself. As long as I am running everything is fine."
"I knew that yoga was a mental game as much as a physical one, which is a large reason why I wanted to try it."
"...I [exercise] because if I don't, it all falls apart. And I exercise more for my mental stress than I do for my physical appearance. So I run, and I do weights."
"I move so I can run with my dog when she is chasing her ball."
"I move so my muscles are strong. I like to feel strong and healthy."
