Last night I set out for a quick run after work. Yes, this morning girl moved over to the dark side due to a crazy schedule yesterday. 7 miles of rolling hills. Definitely not easy but hills are speedwork in disguise so I was determined to conquer them in the crazy heat and humidity.
It helps that I had this gorgeous view. Sometimes I just need a reminder of why I run in the first place.
PR’s are a nice confidence booster…medals are shiny and bling blingy…races are fun and a great adrenaline rush. But at the end of the day…what KEEPS me running is this…
-To chase the sun.
-For the challenge up that hill to make it all the way to the top.
-To compete against MYSELF…and run my fears and doubts into the ground.
-To sightsee and explore.
-To clear my head from the cares of the day.
-For that moment of stillness to talk to God in solitude.
-For the RUNNER’S HIGH.
-For those who can’t.
So tell me…why do you run?
