"I'm a masochist" is the answer I give when I get asked why I like to run. It's not the expected answer but it's the most simple, direct and honest answer.
I run for my health. I like to eat and have a weakness for salty snacks. Running allows me my indulgence.
I run for my sanity. OK, some would argue that it hasn't helped but running is my therapy.
I run to think. My best ideas come while running. Nothing but me and my mind while out for a run.
I run because I like the pain. Ahhh...that masochistic thing. Running never gets easier for me. The more I run the stronger I get and that's the big win.
Until next time...
