Happy National Running Day — 10 Reasons to Run, even if you don’t like running!

Happy National Running Day!

Yes, this is a day to celebrate!

I like running…weird, I know. I like to run for so many reasons and at the same time it makes me crazy because I just want to be a better runner and that doesn’t come easy. Time + training = better runner.

Running is not effortless for me, it’s hard.  I have to always remind myself to check my form/posture, be aware of my breathing, make sure my shoulders are not up by my ear lobes, look at my feet to make sure I’m not getting lazy and start to pronate.

Running keeps it real for me.

Somedays you run and feel incredible and somedays those runs are tough and terrible and it takes more mental work to keep going than physical work to stay going.

Running is a metaphor for life….you can always improve.

  1. I run (well…jog is probably more accurate) because it is my best chance for an intense work-out by myself. If I’m a mile and a half from my house, I have to get home somehow. I don’t love it but I do it.
