I'm not just a runner. I'm also a nerd... but not in the cool way these days of knowing a lot about the Marvel Universe or microbreweries... in the way of being a programmer. Anyway, I got profiled by the Social Science Research Center at DePaul University in their "How I Work" series. So here's me NOT in running clothes for once: "How Zach Freeman Works" But there's still a running quote in there: What do you do to stay inspired? I go running. If you run far enough it’s like meditating because your mind gets cleared.
