    Yes, that they do.

     

     

    In fact, I told my realtor yesterday that he lost major points when I saw that he drove a Camry.

    Re: Why Run?

     

    I love running the marathon b/c it gives me focus and discipline throughout the year. 

     

     

    It's the best exercise ever!

     

     

    Running and eating go well together.

     

     

    It's MUCH cheaper than therapy AND it really helps.

     

     

    I like myself better when I run. 

     

     

    When else can I have a snickers bar and a cheeseburger in the same day ( I have the snickers bar on a 20 mile run and a Five Guys burger after a 20+ mile run)?

    Re: Why Run?

     

    1. I want to run a marathon with my dad.. and maybe be able to keep up with him this year.

     

     

    2. My legs/butt look hot when Im training for a marathon and in serious running mode..

     

     

    3. I get super moody when I dont run.

     

     

    4. Even though I live alone and have plenty of time to ponder in quiet, when Im running is when Im able to focus on whats usually annoying me.

     

     

    5. running skirts are cute

     

     

    6. I love cheese dip and margaritas and have pictures to prove that not running and having cheese dip/margaritas equals a blimpy mariah

    Re: Why Run?

    I run because after having my hips replaced I fell totally out of shape and became a person I did not want to be. I run because on the one hand the doctors told me not to gain weight because my hips would wear out faster, on the other I was told not to run because it would make my hips wear out faster. I finally realized if both scenarios made my hips wear out faster then let it be the healthy way. So I run. I was told you can't run by friends and family. The Marine in me doesn't recognize "can't" in my vocabulary, so I run. And the people on this board keep me saying I can. And I believe you all more than those that say I can't. 50 days and counting, my e-confirmation is in hand.

    I run because I can... and I am convinced that if early man had not been able to run, we would be extinct.  The Pearl Izuma advertising campaign convinced me when I was young and impressionable.

    Re: Why Run?

     

    I run because it makes me feel great.

     

     

    I run because I'd like to see my granddaughters become adults.

     

     

    I run because I like to garden.

     

     

    I run because I like to eat.

     

     

    I run because I really like the people on this board, and I wouldn't have met them if I didn't.

    Re: Why Run?

     

    I run:

     

     

    not to win

     

     

    not to be this "great leader" because of one's speed

     

     

    not even because it's required of me

     

     

     

     

     

    I run to breathe, smell, see, hear, feel.......................I run to be alive!!
