–I love empty streets early in the morning – the sound of hitting the pavement (or trail), and glorious sunrises.
–It is often times my social hour (or hours). Some people prefer to catch up with their friends over happy hour….I much prefer catching up over MILES. (Okay, and maybe mimosas after)
–It is just my THING. My hobby. My sport that I have gotten to be pretty dang good at. If I do say so myself.
–I love the idea of setting goals and absolutely crushing them.
–I’ve enjoyed defying limits over all of these years. I have loved seeing myself doing things I thought I’d never be able to do. Like complete a 100 miler on trails. More than once.
–Often times running has been there for me when I thought all hope was lost. It has healed me in so many ways…physically. Mentally. Inside and out.
–Running, like life is a roller coaster of sorts. For me it is such a great representation of life in general.
–I love the runner’s high. Always have. It is the ultimate drug. Endorphin rush.
–I CAN. And I’m able. And as long as I’m able. I will be out there. Getting it done.
Running friends! Why do you call yourself a “runner”?
