A lot of people who know me also know I do a bit of running. But the most frequent question I get is "why do you enjoy running?". I don`t know why but I thought I will ask the question to all of you too.
My response to anyone who asks this question is it keeps me fit and healthy, makes me better at work, makes me good looking and gives me a better sex life. That normally shuts the ones who ask me.
So what is your answer to this question.
The pain? the injuries? the blisters? the sting from the sweat in the eyes?
I have no idea, I must be a masochist
I don't run. I'm just here for shits and giggles.
mmmm choccie digestives
Ah you see I combined the two with choccie digestives
Edit oops cross post with RM
When I run I feel like I have a purpose, like I'm doing something worthwhile to fill gaps in my life. The process of pushing myself and doing something constructive makes me feel good.
I enjoy learning about the whole concept of running, having said that I do feel I have an addictive nature, when I enjoy doing something I tend to go 110% at it and need to know everything. So far thats been a good thing which has also benefitted my training partner as she has enjoyed being left to run while I plot the workouts, read the training plans, pass on the tips etc etc. Everyone wins.
I run because I can feel the wind on my face, hear the song of the birds, or stride through the peaceful quiet of a wood at dawn.
I swim because I can glide through the water free of the weight of my body and free of troubles and problems, finding a peace in the rhythm and flow of exertion.
I do triathlon because I have a credit card.
I've recently started running because I've given up smoking. I find running reminds me why I've stopped smoking. I also get a sense of acheveiment out of it.
I've also found running really helps to combat stress, and clears my mind.
I swim because I like it and I'm quite good. Swimming is lovely. I do triathlon because I'm a warrior and I like going to get ice cream from the ice cream man in hot pants.
