It’s going to be awesome!
Since I will be celebrating with these two very important groups of friends, I decided to reach out to them and ask them why they run. My question was simple, “Why do you run?”
I run because…
It’s who I am.
It’s good for me.
It allows me to be outside.
It allows me to meet new friends.
The Cruisers run because…
I’m married to DebRuns; do I really have a choice?
I like to eat good food and drink good wine.
I love the social aspect of running with other people!
I run so I can eat a lot of chocolate.
I run because in my mind, I am a Kenyan.
I run because I can and that’s a blessing I never want to take for granted!
Every day I run is a “good day.”
I always feel better after a run than before.
It makes me feel stronger, more powerful, and energetic.
I like to run.
Walking is slow.
It’s a great escape from reality.
I run because I love it.
It is a cheaper addiction than smoking that I did for 27 years.
And it compliments the breath mind body connection of yoga.
I quit smoking 10 years ago and running was my replacement to refocus me.
…otherwise I would drink!
. . . of the runner’s high!
. . . I get time with my girlfriends.
. . . the older I get the more I am challenging myself.
. . . I can!
I run to teach my daughter a life lesson . . .
I rarely place in my age group. I run for me and that is my winning.
I run because it is a form of mind, body, and soul therapy
that makes me feel complete.
It is also a wonderful way to spend quality time with my running buddies.
I always feel better after my runs with them
because we talk about everything!
I run because everything always seems so much better after I run.
Moms RUN This Town run because…
I love to eat!
It changes the way I view myself.
I want my girls to see what healthy really is,
not what “healthy” is according to media sources.
Because it keeps me healthy, happy, and strong!
It relieves the stress I am facing from having a teenage girl!!!
It is cheaper than therapy!
So my legs won’t jiggle as much when I walk!
It’s my meditation and keeps me connected with nature.
We were born to run!
It’s my “me” time and I always feel better afterwards!
It’s my therapy, my sanity, my down time.
It’s who I am.
From all of us, to all of you,
Happy National Running Day!
