Two years ago if you had asked me what I was doing for National Running Day, I would have assumed you were joking or asked you if there really is such a thing. Of course there is!! And now, I would answer by saying, I’m running, of course!
The reasons I run are really endless. I never thought I’d be that person that is ready to head out the door in the morning before the sun is even up to get a couple miles in. I have also met some wonderful people, both in real life and through blogs, because of running. I am thankful to be able to run.
I run for stress relief. I run to get in shape. I run to feel better. I run because I love food. I run for beer. I run because it’s cheaper than therapy. I run because I can. I run because it makes me feel strong. I run because it makes me proud.
I was going to run this afternoon, but the rain chances are very high. So, I already went for my run this morning. It was hot and humid but it felt great. 2 miles before my day starts.
