We all have our reasons for running and if you are like me, you can think of hundreds of reasons why you run, but it can all be summed up with the all encompassing
I love running.
Injuries can happen and ruin weeks of hard training or it can all come together for a magnificent PR.
and of course everything in between. People who don't run might not understand, but that's okay. I dont get other sports like golf and baseball.
Running is more than just one foot in front of the other,
more than the sense of pride in a new personal best or new personal distance record,
more than the stress it relieves
It can also be as a social activity or some much needed alone time.
It is time to refresh the soul and push to new limits.
It makes me a better mommy and a happier wife.
It makes me feel so happy to be out running with the sun kissing my skin early in the morning, watching the sun come up.
I'm competitive. I love running fast and racing. I want to see how much faster I can go and how many people I can pass. I love running fast.
Here are some wild flowers I saw on a run I did last week that left me recharged.
Yes, I think running is even about taking time to enjoy the scenery too.
Check out these wild roses I found.
From the National Running Day web site:
"National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running. Wherever we are and whomever we’re with, we run — fast or slow, alone or with others, all over town or just around the block. It is a coast-to-coast celebration of a sport and activity that’s simple, inexpensive and fun. It’s the perfect way for longtime runners to reaffirm their love of running and for beginners to kick off a lifetime and life-changing commitment."
So, Running, in case you didn't already know, here is a reaffirmation...
I love you, I really do.
Let's have another exciting and EPIC year together!
For me golf. Never even been a little interested and just about die of boredom if forced to watch it.
Did you reaffirm your love of running?
