In case you missed it, today is….

I plan on taking a nice, long run later this evening at a new trail that we discovered at Holly Recreation Area. This area has really helped renew my running again. In recognition of today, here’s a brief list of the reasons why I run. I’d love hear your reasons as well so share below! 🙂

I Run Because…

– It makes me feel strong.
– My health depends on it.
– It’s cheaper than therapy (both psychological & retail).
– The silence is needed sometimes.
– I’d rather be sore than sorry.
– Sometimes I just need to get away from life.
– It makes me feel healthier…and happier.
– It gives me something to work towards.
– It gives me energy.
– It gives me an excuse to buy cute workout clothes.
– Some of my best ideas come while zoned out running.
– My personal best is just that: mine.

– I love the endorphin rush.
– It makes my legs look fab!

– It makes getting dressed in the morning so much more positive.
– It’s the best way to sight see.
– There’s a freedom in just getting out and running with no destination in mind.
