Why do I run?

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...
