Fill in the end of this sentence “I run……”
Some of my favorites I’ve seen are

- 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.
