Following today’s assignment, the following link inspired me to look at the question of why I began to run:
The reasons I began running are:
1. My nieces wanted me to run a Color Run with them.
2. My health insurance pays for my gym membership, which gives me a place to train.
(I’m a cheap person when it comes to paying out money for my own physical betterment.)
3. Running has become a new type of therapy for me.
4. As a recovered addict, running is a healthy addiction. I have gone from being an alcoholic to a “runaholic.”
I could probably add to the list but I’ll leave that for another time.
