Because I Love To Run

I can genuinely say that I love to run. However, I didn’t always feel that way.

Like when I was 14 years old and training for soccer. Running, doing Fartlek training and then being tested. I probably hated it because I was being tested. I even hated drinking water back then too but would drink it because I knew I needed it. I now love drinking water….it’s all I drink, for the most part 😉

I love running on a cool fall day, on the snow covered ground, with rain falling on my face in the spring. I love how I feel after a hard run on a hot summer’s day. I also love that I have the opportunity to run on a treadmill.

I recently saw this video thanks to an awesome Canadian Running Blogger group I belong to and just had to share it.

 Do you LOVE to run? 

Or is Running something you just do?

If not running, what do you LOVE to do?

  1. Thank you for sharing this video. I really needed it. I’ve been feeling down about running lately due to injuries and feeling discouraged about the goal I made to run a marathon at the end of May. This reminded of why I started running in the first place — just for the pure fun/beauty of it.

  2. Sometimes I love running and sometimes it’s miserable but in the end I would say that I love it. And I definitely love how empowering it is to reach my running goals.

  3. It took me a long time to fall in love with running, but now I can genuinely say I do. I love the feeling in my legs and it’s so easy to let your mind wander to a happy place! I also really love being the water because it brings me back to being a kid and thinking I was a mermaid! haha
