Running Is Masochistic

"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...
