I want to be a runner
You heard me right. Even though I am a runner, I still carry with me every day the desire to be a runner. Since starting running decades ago, my desire to be a runner never has never died.
Instead, my desire to be a runner comes from the activity and the joy of running—sometimes sluggishly, sometimes spectacularly, but most times ordinarily, and that’s just fine with me.
Amy and I have gone on record saying that the only thing we enjoy more than running is the wonderful people running connects us to. To us, there are two types of people—those who are runners, and the less fortunate rest of the population. Yes, we’re biased.
We regularly hear that a favorite feature on the Runners’ Lounge home page is the “Why I Run” space. It changes with every click and offers some inspiring reasons that explain why runners run. Makes me wish I’d said them myself. Below are some of the reasons you’ll find.
Notice how many reasons we have in common and how some are so unique. Go ahead and click on them and discover the runner behind the reason. And then introduce yourself and leave ‘em a comment.
The reasons are endless, and we hope you're still discovering and expressing why you run.
This is Inspiration Week at Runners’ Lounge
We’re excited to learn about what inspires and motivates you, and we expect we’ll all pick up some deep inspiration from each other. Also, on Tuesday, the winner of free running shoes will be named for that runner whose story was submitted for an Extraordinary Running award.
Keep up your good running!
