It’s National Running Day and Sky and I will be joining the stroller group to show T Town how the stroller ladies and tots get it done!
Better yet, I missed last nights group run (which I don’t love), so my legs are super fresh to push the stroller today! Love having fresh legs on stroller day!
National Running Day seems like a good time to answer the question: I run because_____________.
Why do I run?
Because I can, because there are those that can’t. Even on my worst running day there are those that would give almost anything to be able to have a bad run…any kind of run at all. When I run I think about all those, known and not, that can’t run due to a temporary injury, due to a life changing disease or event, or those who have never been able to take a single step in the first place.
It puts a new perspective on the phrase “I can’t”. Very rarely is “I can’t” a true statement when it comes to running, or life for that matter. Like I tell Sky almost every day…there is a difference between I can’t and I don’t want to. When I start to feel like I can’t, I remind myself that there those that truly can’t, that I’m running because I want to, because I can, and because I love it.
So tell me what is your reason to run? I run because_____________?
Happy National Running Day! Now go out there and log some miles!
