Just Run!

"My sport is your sport's punishment!"  I love that quote.  I remember when I played any other sport growing up, and if we ever did something wrong, we ran.  I hated running.  I could never understand how people could do it for enjoyment. 

Yes, at first it is hard.  It is still hard for me.  I have seen the light, and I know I will get to the point where I can just run!  Just imagine being able to run for miles, enjoying the sunrise.  Just you and your thoughts.  I have had a few runs like that.  You just enjoy it.  As the weight comes off, I know I will have more and more just like them.

Just RUN!

Why do you love to run?

I love that quote too. I just wrote this post on "why I run"

but for me, at first it was to lose weight, then it was to stay in shape, then it was because I found that it was a part of who I am, and something I am meant to do. :)

I love to run because it is "me" time and I love the way I feel when I am fihished.

I used to hate running too. It took about a year before I could say I actually enjoyed it. And while it isn't always easy still, today I can say I love it.

clears my head, relieves stress, keeps the weight off... all in all, I love how it makes me a happier person.

I love to run partly because like you I used to hate it. I love it because of the way I feel on the good ones, and afterwards on all of them. I think human beings were meant to run, and I want to do what I was meant to do.
