The truth is that there is probably not just one reason. It’s a culmination of lots of compelling reasons that will get you out the door.
I run so that I sleep like I’m in a coma at night.
I run to keep by BMI low enough to get the insurance discount.
I run to let go of anger and resentment.
I run to have more freedom in my diet.
I run to be a good role model for my kids.
I run because of Mellow Mushroom and Blue Bell Ice Cream.
I run so that I can spend my summer vacations hiking up and down and all over the world seeing new places.
I run so that I can still do most of my home improvement projects myself.
I run so that I know what it is to suffer for a greater good.
What are your reasons?
The pleasure of jogging and running is rather like that of wearing a fur coat in Texas in August: the true joy comes in being able to take the damn thing off.
