First of all I love it because...running. I think if you are a runner that doesn't even need explanation.
It has taught me I can do hard things. I can run in the heat. I can run in the wind. I can run in the cold. I can run 26.2 miles. I can run 200 mile relays. I can survive the fast and furious 5k at sub 7 minute per mile pace, even if it hurts in that moment. Sometimes it isn't fun, but I can do it.
It moves me out of my comfort zone. If you would have asked me at one time if I would ever run a marathon I would have laughed. Nope! If you asked me at one time if I would do a 200 mile relay with 11 people who were mostly strangers, I would have laughed, Nope!
The friendships I have made and or made stronger through running are some of my favorite.
|seriously my Montana Running Ranchers/Team Beef Montana relay team is the best|
