Why I run: In general, I love to run. Of course, there are some days when I just don't want to do it, or when my legs feel heavy and tired, when I can't find the groove, when I just feel slow and lethargic and grumpy about it all. But most days, I love running. I love the solitude - time to think, to pray, to listen to my breath and pounding feet, or to just enjoy some silly music. I love running the sun up, love getting really sweaty and whole-body tired. Running clears my mind, balances me out, gives me energy, and challenges me. No two runs are ever the same.
