I run because…

10/17/2011

A few months ago I would have never claimed to be a “runner.” In fact, in all honesty, I probably still don’t claim to be one. I will admit now, however, that I like to run. I now understand the enjoyment that so many people feel from running. I don’t think “people who run are crazy” anymore. 😉 I have found that running is a benefit for me in so many ways.

 

 

I run because….

 

I run because it is one of the only times when my head feels completely clear.

I run because I like the feeling of being active.

I run because it allows me to feel in control- of my body and my mind.

I run because it alleviates stress.

I run because I enjoy pushing myself to my limits.

I run because I love the sense of accomplishment I feel afterwards.

I run because it allows me to set goals for myself.

I run because it makes me happier.

I run because it allows me to think.

I run because I want to prove to myself that I can do it.

I run because I can.

 

 

 

Tell me: If you’re a runner- why do you run?

    I run because I can. I run because its a challenge. I run because it makes me happy and free. I run for me.

      Jess-I love the challenge, as well! From what I read on your blog, I can tell that you are constantly challenging yourself in many ways! 🙂
