I love running.
I never run for a purpose other than to run. I do not run races or set huge running goals. I do not run to lose weight. The only goals I set for a run is to run a certain length and try to beat my previous time.
Many people do not understand this. They think it is a waste of time unless I am training for a race or trying to lose weight. I think it is a great way to spend an hour.
So why do I run? I run because I enjoy it. I enjoy pushing my body past its comfortable limits. I enjoy the solitude. I am able to think clearly and creatively during my runs. I feel stronger and healthy. I run to be me and only me, not mommy or wife or daughter or sister or friend. I run because I’m good at it. I’m not fast or run many miles and the great thing is I do not feel the need to do either one.
I guess I have found my purpose for running.
Why do you run?
