I get a lot of questions from friends and strangers asking me why I run.
It started with the motivation to loose weight and reduce the risk of high blood pressure and the other 'bad' illnesses bedevilled my family. Over the years I have raced in multiple running events and triathlons. I have run in every city I have travelled in. That by itself doesn't explain why.
To try and do that I have given long, rambling answers. And yes I have seen the polite response. My wife Sally has learned to give me "the look".
I stumbled across this video recently and it gives the best answer: running gives me the opportunity to do my absolute best for a cause. Check out the video for the rest of the story:
Until next time...
