10 Things that I LOVE About Running

5 Comments

I’m up and enjoying my two eggs, GF toast with almond butter, water and coffee before the Diva Dash 5K! I don’t have much to say (a bit nervous about this race) so here is an old post I felt like re-posting:

10. Running is a great way to get outside and experience the area where I live from a different perspective.

9. Pure and simple — it’s a great cardio workout!

8. Always improving and be competitive with yourself and accomplishing goal after goal, whether it is a new distance or speed PR, or whatever.

7. Running is also a way I can be competitive with others. I’m not really a competitive person by nature, but running races tends to bring it out in me.

6. I’m extra crabby when I don’t run. (so I’m saying running is almost a necessity for the sake of my marriage and friendships!)

5. Gadgets. Runners use the coolest gadgets from Garmin watches to iPhone apps. I’m a tech geek, what can I say?

4. The indescribable feeling of an evening late summer or early fall run where the air is warm and there is a slight breeze. Nothing like it.

3. It’s a great way to spend time with some of my closest friends that doesn’t involve eating, drinking or spending money. (three things I tend to do often 🙂

2. Running in inclimate weather makes me feel badass.

1. To be able to say that I did it.

Now tell me — what do you love about running?!
