Common Questions

The two most common questions I am asked about my running are:
1. How far is that marathon?
2. Why do you run (that far)?

So, in honor of national running day, I've decided to answer the why question.

I run to celebrate and to mourn
         to get happy and because I am happy
         because I am sad and away from sadness
         to be healthy and because I am healthy
         to challenge myself, push myself and make myself stronger
         to think and to clear my head of all thoughts
         to be alone and to be with friends
         to feel confident, powerful and alive
I run because it's who I am.
