“There are as many reasons for running as there are days in the year, years in my life. But mostly I run because I am an animal and a child, an artist and a saint. So, too, are you. Find your own play, your own self-renewing compulsion, and you will become the person you are meant to be.”
I stumbled across this quote as I was trying to come up with a name for the blog. It ended up being the tagline instead, because it describes the whole journey of running so well.
There’s no one reason to run; there’s an infinite number. And the beauty of running lies in finding your own. For me, each day it’s different. Maybe I need to relieve some stress, maybe I want to explore a new place, or maybe I need to break out of a funk.
So get out there and find your own reason, then let me know: why do you run?
