why I run: our about me (and yours, too)

Barkley fall classicSmiling during the Barkley Fall Classic?! How is that possible!? :)

Hi, and thanks so much for visiting my running website.

My name is David Bohmiller, most usually known as "Boh" by friends and running buddies.

Write your runner's profile here.

I wasn't always a runner, though a good amount of the sports that I participated in, while growing up in Framingham, MA, required some type of running.

What did those include?

From soccer, wrestling, swimming, basketball, football, lacrosse, tennis, karate, and more, we had a great variety of experiences in individual and team-based sports. Loved it all!

It is such a great foundation for health and activity to last a life time (so long as we remain consistent!).

Bridgewater State University

My love of sports led me to studying for and earning my degree in Physical Education, with a concentration in Exercise Science, from Bridgewater State University.

During my time in school, and since, I've earned and maintained several professional certifications, most notably:

  • NSCA CSCS (National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist)

  • NSCA TSAC-F (National Strength and Conditioning Association Tactical Strength and Conditioning Facilitator)

Professional Life

Career-wise, and over nearly two decades, I've used my knowledge, and passion for health and fitness, in the following roles:

  • Personal Trainer
  • Group Exercise Instructor
  • Fitness Manager
  • General Manager
  • Small Business Owner
  • District Manager
  • Learning & Development Curriculum Designer
  • L&D Facilitator
  • Mentor to Aspiring Fitness Professionals
  • and, much more!

I've loved sharing my knowledge with clients and colleagues, and now I'm here to share my passion for running, biking, hiking, and adventuring with you.

Our site grows each week, through our own articles, as well as through content submitted by readers across the globe. Running websites apparently enjoy similar camaraderie as running clubs do!

And, we're all fortunate for that, as it allows each of us to continue learning, growing, and progressing (and hopefully getting faster or running farther!).

So, What's My "Why I Run" Story?

running for charityRunning for Charity: One of the many reasons "Why I Run."

Running has given me much more than health and fitness.

It has given me incredible friendships, through running partners, race buddies, and those that I've traveled with for races & events.

It has allowed me to follow my passion of giving back, through running for charity, and supporting those who may not have the same opportunities.

I'll be creating my "Why I Run" Runners Profile just below.

And, I'll be asking you to do the same! (It's easy!).

I'm looking forward to learning all about you soon!
