10 Things I Love About Running

When I first met you, I loved you – although I didn’t know it yet.  Together we explored playgrounds, backyards, and ball fields until you, running, the simplest form of play captured my heart and I no longer needed all of the games, just you.  Oh running, how I love thee!  Let me count the ways.

  1. I love the adventures and travels I would have never taken if it weren’t for you. From the streets of Boston, to the trails of the Sierras and several spots along the way.
  2. I love the fat that you’ve kept off my hips, stomach, thighs, and bum for my willful pursuit of the endorphin buzz.
  3. I love the endorphin buzz.
  4. I love the sounds of my friends, all breathing heavy and full of stories after a weekend run. Friends that would remain unknown if it weren’t for you.
  5. I love the peaceful sound of nothing at all when I run by myself.
  6. I love how I continually set goals and push my limits because of you.
  7. I love how our early morning outings wake me up, and help me feel ready to conquer the day.
  8. I love how you help me to forget all of my problems at the end of a long day.
  9. I love how my legs respond and help me to find myself when I go for a run and I’m angry, or sad, or happy.
  10. I love the gear, and the gadgets, and the science behind them all, and the simplicity of being able to enjoy you with none of it if that’s the mood I am in.

Running, you have always been there for me, and when I have been forced to take a break, you have welcomed me back each time with an open trail.
