Need more motivation? Here's why I love running.
I love running...
Because it feels good.
Because even when it doesn't feel good, it feels good
Because I love the sweat.
Because I love the hills.
Because the best showers are post-run showers.
Because my resting heart rate is now in the 50's.
Because it's taught me to push myself.
Because I can explore my limits.
Because I sleep better and deeper at night.
Because it keeps sickness away.
Because it reduces stress.
Because it fills me with positive emotions.
Because running to music feels like dancing.
Because it's the one thing I know I can accomplish in a day.
Because it makes me feel unconquerable.
Because I could probably outrun any attacker.
Because it brings me back to childhood.
Because of the sprint to the end.
Because my kids are watching and learning.
Because it is fun.
Because races are addicting.
Because early-morning runs allow me to see the sunrise.
Because it gives me freedom.
Because no other exercise compares.
Because it's ME time.
Because ornery mom becomes happy mom.
Because when I'm done, I feel like I can conquer the world.
Because I can.
How about you? Why do you love to run/walk/elliptical/etc? And anyone interested in the race?
