TOTR: National Running Day

June 7, 2017

I wish I could run tomorrow but I’ll be working out of town plus it is supposed to rain (again!!)

What a better time to reflect on WHY I RUN!!


  • because it makes me feel good. 
  • because it makes me feel healthy. 
  • because it makes me feel active. 
  • because it makes feel younger. 
  • because it’s a challenge.  
  • because it gives me time to be alone. 
  • because it makes me set goals. 
  • because it gives me a sense of pride and accomplishment. 
  • because it makes my day start better. 
  • because it makes a bad day end better. 
  • because it helps me enjoy fresh air and scenic routes. 
  • Because I get to travel to race in different places. 
  • because I get to meet some awesome people who are runners (in person and virtually). 
  • to inspire others to become runners
  • so that I can eat more desserts. 
  • so I can listen to music I like as loud as I like. 
  • as fast or slow as I want. 
  • until I feel like stopping. 
  • wherever I choose 
  • alone or with thousands of others. 
  • to support a cause. 
  • to get a medal. 
  • to a get a tech shirt and other swag. 
  • because I can. 
  • until I can’t. 

Since today is Tuesday, I’m linking up with these wonderful ladies:

Erika @ MCM Mama Runs, Marcia @ Marcia’s Healthy Slice and Patty @ My no-guilt life for

Why do you run?  Did you run today?

  1. For some reason it seems like national running day always falls on a non-running day for me. I’m planning on body pump tomorrow but I might try to squeeze in a quick run tomorrow just because 🙂 I did get in a run this morning. I love your list of reasons that you run!
