Ok, I’m coming up on a year now as a vegetarian, although still eating fish - those may go soon too. "Dr. how long will you keep doing this - it’s causing inconvenience?!" Well, the answer is quite simply, 'forever'. I believe in what I'm doing; I am not trying to force my views on anyone else, and simply trying to lead by example.
Yes, I'm driven to actually finish a 100 miler by the fact that I have over $10 per mile to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society riding on it! Yes I push alternative energies and even make an arguably risky job change to support such a business. And yes, I really do think that environmental issues are important - and heck, you never know, I may eventually simply decide to move my career to teaching, simply because I genuinely like helping students.
And yes, I run trails because I have a true love for the outdoors, and being a part of nature. I do. I admit it. And I offer no apologies for any of these things!
So I like this song, and I hope you listen to it. Peace! Now I need to get going; there are tree's to hug! :)
