While in Florida for the holidays some family members noticed I have been doing a lot of running. In our conversation they asked me, “Why do you run?”. Wow, what a question, I thought to myself! As I thought about that, I realized that running for me was more then just getting in shape or training for next week’s half marathon in Santa Monica. To me, running was a mind exercise. A chance for me to clear my head, challenge my body and mind, and a chance to enter a different state of mind. What does that even mean? Well, some people run to lose weight, some run because of the joy they feel during and after a run, and some run simply to celebrate the fact that they can run!
What does running mean to you? Do you have a reason, a cause, or a message? Is running more than just a form of exercise? Fill me in, let me know, I am curious! Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
