It's National Running Day!!
I didn't know this until an hour ago but I'm excited all the same. A whole day devoted to celebrating my favourite sport of all time! Woo Hoo!
What better day to explore my passion than today? So, here it goes - why I run.
*because it is one of the most primitive and beautiful forms of human motion
*to enhance the flow of endorphins through my body
*because I feel like I'm 17 again when I do
*because it is a perfect time for meditation and connection to my inner life
*to burn calories in an extra efficient manner
*so I can wear my size 2 jeans
*because the battle against the elements reminds me of my resilience in this tough world
*to prove something to my aging knees
*towards life and health - not "from" anything
*because I can carry my equipment in a small satchel and do it wherever I am
*because it's faster than walking
*for fantastic calf muscle definition
*to feel, for an hour at least, completely free
*because injuries are temporary
*for my happiness
*to feel great
*because I can!
Happy Running Day - lace up and get out there!
