Wow, that's a really great quote CK-DUBYA! I think it's so important to have something like that in one's life: reminders that you CAN in fact do the hard stuff. Running is that for me too.

I also really like the way my body feels when I'm running regularly. It's SO HARD and yet the payoff afterwards of sinking into my chair and feeling my legs "thanking me" (sometimes screaming at me), is SO rewarding!

In any case, I'm back to square one with weight loss so I'm back to running again. I love it so much - this time I plan to make it stick.

I'm a Lifer!

I make music, I work out. I dream, I achieve.

I run because I love to see what my body can do, I love to get in the "zone." I pleasantly surprise myself all the time.

I run/jog because I can't always find a pool to swim laps in when traveling and I need to exercise so I can enjoy eating and drinking while traveling to keep the weight gain at a minimum.
My daughter talked me into doing a 5k with her last year and I enjoy the event atmosphere. I don't plan on running anything more than a 5k and do plan to keep running 5ks. The next one is with out son in Missoula, MT when we visit them this summer.

I actually enjoy the challenge of running. I was doing alot of walking which I also enjoy, but it wasn't challenging enough. I've also gotten most of my family to join in which makes me happy.

My local news station posted this article on their website: www.ksl.com/?sid=20691378&nid=1010&t
it
le=running-hurts-so-good
. My favorite quote from the article is "Running is a physical, daily reminder to me that I am strong enough to do hard things. This reminder gives me confidence to tackle other challenges in my life that may have previously scared me off."

My main motivation for running is doing it with my son. It gives a chance to spend time together, just the two of us, enjoying the wind in our face.

Why do you run?

With you on my team and me on yours we are bound to succeed!
