Besides the health benefits of running, both mental and physical… Besides the camaraderie and bragging brights… Besides the cute workout clothes and bright pink shoes… This is why I run. To get outside. To watch the sun rise. To watch the sun set. To see ducks swimming undisturbed at the beach. To see squirrels and chipmunks sleepy and off guard. To see early mornings, late evenings, middays that I otherwise wouldn’t. I don’t run on a treadmill. I run outside. Year round. (Mostly. Okay, not if it’s below 10 degrees. But would you?)
Why do you run?
