>General Running>What do you love about running?
Oh Mighty Wing
I've seen a lot of people on here saying how addicted they are to running, and how much they love it.
What is it about running that you love?
Is it the feeling you get when you've finished a run, or how you feel during the run?
Is it the accomplishment you feel when finishing a race?
Is it the way it keeps you in shape?
I'm getting back into running after taking about 12 years off. Last time I ran seriously was in High School. When I'm running, I feel good about being out there, but it HURTS. When I'm done, I feel great though. I like the weight I'm loosing too!!!
I couldn't find this discussed before, but if it has been, I appologise for the re-post.
Have a good one,
I love the feeling of motion, seeing, feeling the world go by.
I love the feeling of effort -- a good effort, working up a sweat.
I love running with a group when we get into a good ryhthm. I like to hear the sounds of shoes hitting pavement, when people are at a high work rate, no talking...just breathing and feet!
I love running with a group of friends, jogging along, chit-chatting about nothing, just enjoying the company.
I love racing, competing against others and myself, overriding personal limits. I love it when a great race strategy comes together, whether I win anything or not. Success is sweet.
I love running down a long trail by myself, sharing nature with the "locals".

I guess the best thing I like about running is when I am not running, what I mean by that is I really like the feeling of being in shape, you breath better, stairs are not hard and just a feeling of well being over all, also you can eat more even tho I tend to do that anyway. When people ask me why I run I just say to lose weight because you cant really tell a nonrunner why you run any way. Becarefull out there.

I love running because I am a runner. I am a runner because I love running.
