WHY ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR RUNNING OR WALKING?
Last year the NOVEMBER 24, 2015 posting about being thankful on this Holiday reflected my feelings.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
What makes running something for which you are grateful?
Take the survey on the REQUEST BIBS/CONTACT page if you would like to share. Perhaps you will positively influence another would-be-runner's decision to make a commitment to run or walk regularly or to train for competition by your reason or explanation. Inspiration comes from the most unexpected places. We form a community, from which all gain strength, resolve, and acceptance. Pass it on.
Information about running experience, age, and gender is requested but not required.
WHY I Am Thankful for Running (2016)
Makes me feel free
Helps me get outside
Other than paying for shoes, it’s free.
It’s free time to listen to a book or think through a troublesome issue
It’s not complicated
It makes me feel pleasantly tired afterward
It encourages the wearing of cool stuff
It’s age appropriate (for nearly everyone)
Improvement is possible and can be tracked
I can join others
I can have alone time
It allows me to be part of a worldwide community
It adds to my identity.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
