I run...



...so that I can fit back into my pants.
...so I can dance at my grandchildren's weddings.
...to give my heart what-for (and my love-handles).
...to fight disease.
...to clear the fog that accumulates in my brain daily.
...so I can return to my family a saner, happier person.
...to feel "the high."
...to feel strong.
...so I can have uninterrupted ME time: MY music, MY thoughts, NO questions.

What do you do?  And why do you do it?

Can I get back to you on this?

All of those great reasons and
- so I can eat chocolate cake with a little less guilt and really enjoy it!

Because I can.
Because there is still breath left in my body and spring left in my step.
Because someday I may have to admit that I can't anymore and I wouldn't want to regret one moment.

I run...and I love your reasons. They seem to be my reasons too.
Although fighting shin splints right now..someone is helping me with
those now. Hope it helps.
