The challenge of it. It's been about the only form of exercise that I've stuck with for this long of tiem. I always find it challenging whether I'm going a mile or five.

I have a lot of reasons...i mean the obvious ones, like health, over all well being, ect...But the eve of my first race friends of mine were over visiting with us. When I told them I was running in a race Jenny blurted out "WHAT??? YOU CAN'T RUN"???? She didn't mean to be hurtful when she said it, Jenny is very overweight, but to her running is impossible. One of those things that all of our bodies are designed to do from day 1.

I hear her voice in my head every time I run.

Hmm. Well I've only done a 5k and I've never actually run yet. I've only jogged maybe 5 miles altogether ever (all since I started maybe 6 months ago), but I like doing something that everyone keeps telling me I can't do, lol. :)

I enjoy the stress relief, a good run can change my day around and bring me clarity when I am thinking through something. When I run races I feel like no matter where I finish whether it is first or last (usually the latter) that I am a winner for even starting. Running is something I can truly be proud of because it is something I do for me and no one else!
