Running allows my thoughts to go freely, for me to think about things happening in my life, what I want to do in the next hour, day, month, year, five years, etc. I also think about decisions I must make. Some of my best thoughts, insights, and decisions have been made while running.
I can't begin to express how much running has impacted my life in the past 13 years. I've been running exactly half of my life. It has shaped my life in countless ways. I've spend hours, days, probably months running. I've gotten a lot out of it, but put a lot into it. I've grown as a runner, and look forward to in the future.
The greatest thing about running is that it will always be there. All I need to do is lace up my shoes and go. The roads are calling...
“Success isn't how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started.”
Did you celebrate National Running Day today? Or, are you like me, and celebrate it multiple times throughout the year?
