Fill in the end of this sentence “I run……”

Some of my favorites I’ve seen are

  • I run because it’s cheaper than therapy
  • I run because it’s my salvation
  • I run to be a better person
  • I run to achieve Foximus Maximus!
  • I run away from drama
  • I run no matter what
  • I run to see the sunrise
  • I run to feel free and alive
  • I run for life!
  • I run for myself
  • I run to see what I’m capable of
  • I run because I can
  • I run for cancer
  • I run so I am the best mom I can be
  • I run because I love to

My ending would be “I run to feel centered.”  When I go for a run, it is me and my mind all alone, working things out and finding a rhythmic tranquility.  I love that running is intensity adjustable- if I feel like running chill and relaxed I do- if I feel like running pedal to the metal I do- if I have 30 minutes or 3 hours to run I can adjust to fit.  I love that running gets you somewhere- you see the city sights or the awesomeness of nature- you can swing by your favorite or a new sweet shop for a bite on your route.  I love that running makes me more observant of everything and everyone around me.  I love that running works every inch of my body.  I love that running is measurable so that I can be so dang proud of my accomplishments and blast my doubts out of the water.  I love the rhythm of the feet on the ground, the breath puffing along, the guidance of the strong trunk.  I run because it makes me appreciate and take in every moment.   I run to feel centered.
