Earlier in September, Sarah Witt joined Bring Back the Mile as a Mile Maniac and wrote a great entry for BBTM on What the Mile Means to Her. We then had the opportunity to speak to Sarah and get a sense of just how passionate she was for the Mile and the enthusiasm for the Mile she organizes in Raleigh, NC -- The Magnificent Mile. Sarah is an inspiration to any runner, fan and especially those fighting motor neuron diseases. Enjoy!

My passion for running started around the time I turned 12. That's when I started running to get in shape for basketball and realized that running itself was amazing and I was pretty good at it. I went on to run track and cross country in high school and was a walk-on at my alma mater Davidson College. I lasted until my sophomore year when my knee refused to cooperate with the level of training college sports demands. Though never a superstar, the Mile was my favorite event.
