The quote at the end is what got me: "I run because when I do, there is always the chance to be extraordinary."
Flash forward a few months... some of you are aware of my current "job" situation. I've found the proverbial "right door," I'm just waiting for it to open. The waiting is the hardest part- being *this close* to starting my dream career weighs heavy on me every day.
Running has provided me with an excellent distraction from the waiting. It's been my saving grace, reminding me God truly does have plans to "give me hope and a future."
I don't mean to get all mushy on you, but I wanted to share, at this point in my life, why I run.
I run because I like to feel the wind at my face and my feet hit the ground.
I run because it makes me feel like I can do anything.
I run because it reminds me there is always room for improvement.
I run because it makes me thankful for today.
I run because it gives me hope for a better tomorrow.
I run because I’m reminded anything is possible.
I run because life isn’t always easy but the things that are worth having are worth fighting for.
I run because there is a little part of me that is always striving to be better, faster, and stronger.
I run because I like to face my fears before defeating them.
I run because I want to test my will and come out more resilient.
I run because I want to see what I’m made of.
I run because I want to feel alive.
I run because I can.
Why do you run?
