Why do you run?

I run because I always have.
I run because I love it.
I run because I like when my jeans fit easily.
I run because I like bread. Okay, because I love anything with a carb in it (see the former statement).
I run because I have a ponytail that swings perfectly at a 7:45 pace.
I run because I’m good at it.
I run because as many before me have said, it will change you.
I run to see how far I can go. And sometimes how fast.

    I run for the adrenaline and excitement of the race, but mostly for the feeling once the race is actually over with.
    I run to win, or to come as close as I possibly can.
    I run so that I can go on adventure runs through my trails with my dog.
    I run to have fun with my teammates.
    I run for a PR.
    I run for the endorphins.
    Mostly, I just run because I love it. (like you)

    We should make stickers of these to put on various things, like the alarm clock trying to jar us out of sleep and out into a cold morning…

    yeah, that's a good idea! It would probably make a good gift also. Everybody needs some motivation, especially this winter. I can't wait for the snow to go away.
