Friday Five: 5 Reasons to Run

It’s Friday! I’m linking up once again with Eat Pray Run DCYou Signed Up for What?! and Mar on the Run for their Friday Five Linkup. This week’s theme is – National Running Day which was on Wednesday. In honor of National Running Day I’m giving you five reasons I run.

1. To stay healthy and fit. Running is a great way to get in shape as well as maintain fitness and health.

2. To push myself. Running has been a great outlet in allowing me to realize I can do things I would never have attempted. For example, I will be running my first marathon in October. I’ve taken the plunge to do something I thought was crazy before.IMG_1783

3. Because I can. There are many that would love to run but can’t like those in the IRUN4 community. I have an IRUN4 buddy and I’m honored to run for Caysen who has Down Syndrome.

4. Feels good. Especially after a run, I usually feel great. Knowing that I’ve accomplished something good for my body, or finished a race, or went faster or longer than I’ve gone before is awesome! You know the feeling.

  2. All great reasons to run! I run for all of those reasons as well. It is great to be a role model for the kiddos!! I’m excited for you running your first marathon this fall!! 🙂
