I love running. I like to do at least one 5k every couple of months. maybe that doesn’t seem like much. At least until you get to know me. I have a very difficult time even standing. When I do a run, I can hardly get up for several days. So why do I run?
I run because of how I feel when I run. It quiets the noise in my head. It helps me to focus. I find a consistent rhythm that helps me to process. When I run, it makes me feel better. Normal. Calm.
I run because it is worth the pain to feel free.
