    Re: Why do you still run?

    Wow, so glad I looked at this before my run. Best run I've had in a LONG time and during the entire thing, I thought about why I run. It was raining here today so I ran without the Ipod and it was amazing. I run because I like to eat, because I like to see how far I can push myself mentally and physically. Because of the great feeling of even the smallest accomplishment, whether it be running 5 more minutes than last time or even 5 more steps before walking. Because it relaxes me and allows me to clear my head. I run because I love the way it makes me feel and I run because I can.

    Re: Why do you still run?

     

        What a great thread! I found it just when I was having trouble getting motivated to go run tonight, but this got me out there, and I thought about my reasons for a fantastic 6 miles.

     

     

         I started running because until a reacent breast reduction surgery, I couldn't run very easily. After the surgery I felt so free and so fast it was amazing!

     

     

         Now, 60 pounds lighter and way faster, I run because I get cranky otherwise, and because I like to see people's faces when I talk about my mileage. Even more than that, however, I like to think about how far I've already come, and am excited to find out where I can go from here if I just keep running.

    Last bump, Ruby!  Maybe one of these sparks will help to light your fire, too!

    Awesome, have great runs, sometimes it's hard to get motivated, if so, take a couple of days and do nothing and be a bi!ch, that'll make you run better and faster.  And what an achievment, losing 60 pounds, awesome.
