Gonna try not to get too deep and serious here. But it’s a topic Penny and I have been discussing lately. I’ve been the optimistic one lately because I’ve had – more or less – an injury-free 2014. Penny has been a little gloomy on the topic, as she works her way back from injury again and all the emotions that come with it.
Why do I run?
Really, there are tons of reasons. And every day is different . . .
I run because I’m in better shape at 33 than I was at 23.
I run to have fun.
I run because I'm an athlete.
I run because I want sunshine.
I run because I want the runner’s high.
I run because I'm dedicated.
I run to get sexy racer back tan lines.
I run because I want a PR.
I run to look good.
I run to be healthy and fit.
I run to explore my surroundings.
I run because then I get to eat 3,000 calories a day.
I run because it’s gorgeous outside.
I run because my training plan tells me to.
I run to race.
I run to wear bright colors.
I run because I’m a goal-driven overachiever.
