No running yesterday. The little cold I ran with on Tuesday has completely taken over my body and I can’t get out of bed. So, I’m deciding that I’ll focus on something a little more positive until I can run again (hopefully Friday).
When I talk to non-runners about running they always ask “Why would you want to do that?” or they say something along the lines of “that sounds terrible.” If you aren’t a runner, you might not understand all the reasons why someone would want to spend way too much money to run 26.2 miles without stopping. Not to mention the months of training, sore muscles, blisters, and even more money spent on shoes and other gear. I can see how it might not make sense to everyone.
So, I want to hear from all my fellow runners… what do you say when someone asks you why you run? Here are my top 5 reasons:
What is your number one reason why you run?
If you can’t pick one, give me 5 reasons!
