Why do I run?

Someone asked me the other day – Why do you run?

Set my brain thinking – there are so many reasons but I finally realised that this was really it –

I run because at first I couldn’t and now I can. The sense of achievement from each run and especially the really long runs, the half and full marathons and the dreams to run some ultras.

I can therefore I run, I run therefore I can do and aspire to do many things I couldn’t before!

  1. I agree with your thought. It’s same as some one asked George Mellory, Why do you want to climb Mt. Everest and his reply was .. “Because, it is there”.
