The Reason I Run

Why do you run?

I run because I have a career that is ridiculously stressful. The kind of career where you find out about how not so nice the world is. Most days it's okay but other days not so much.

And so to escape the pressures, to de-tox my system, and to generally relax - I run. I guess I run to get away. And thankfully it works.

I also run for my health and because nothing has changed my body the way running has. But that's just a fringe benefit. Mostly, I just do it because while my feet are pounding the treadmill to the rythm of my iPod selection - I'm able to escape.
