Why I run when I can barely walk.

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.
