Anytime anyone knows that I run they say, “I don’t know why or how you run. I hate it.” I tell them, “I have been running now for 10 years and every time I lace up I hate it, until I love it. Even after all these years.” It true. The first 7 minutes I am thinking, “Why am I doing this? It’s too hot. It’s too cold. I am starving. This is awful. It’s going to be short run. This sucks. I am stupid. Why the hell do I do this?” EVERY DAMN TIME!! Once that mile is done and I find my groove, my pace, my breathe, the adrenaline kicks in, the endorphins start working, and the oxygen gets moving to my brain I find myself lost in my thoughts. I find myself going farther, faster, longer, but most importantly, I find my why. I find my smile. I find my Joy. I find myself. It’s this feeling that I remember and the kick ass feeling I experience after that motivates me to keep lacing up and find my why.
