What Running Means to Me

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Running allows me to wear pants with elastic waistbands, flashy colors that don't match, and funny looking hats. Running makes me break through my own resistance, test boundaries, and push through perceived limitations. Running lets me compare myself to me, achieve my own goals, and feel a sense of satisfaction in the payoff that comes through effort and commitment. Running gives me a natural high, connection to the world, and closeness to my Higher Power. Running renews my spirit.

    I LOVE it! LOL ... yes, running does all of that and more, doesn't it? My DH and I laugh often that not too long ago we would have been in the group of people who say "I'd run if a bear was chasing me" but now we got out and run when we can, together or apart! Running has changed my life ... I feel like I can do anything after I've finished my run. My dream was to be able to run 5 miles a day ... I can do that although I don't do it every day. Now I get to level my dream up a notch ... and that is unbelievable to me!

    Keep up the great work ... Nice job! emoticon
