Why Do You Run? Inspiration and Motivation for Every Runner

Why Do You Run? I run to celebrate the joy of my being…

The ecstasy that I am! Why do you run? I run that I may be alone with myself and together with my universe. Run to find the rhythm of the pounding rush of my own heart which sets its beat to the pulsing of time. I run in time ever present as it passes through my world garbed in the white robes of winter, the patchwork of fall, stripped to the simplicity of summer or garlanded with the new growing things of spring. Run seeking the feeling of harmony that is mine if I will but open to it. I run to feel the earth chains break and drop along my path. I run until I am numb to the everyday cares and woes and I flow forward; a part of the air which I suck into thirsty lungs the earth which softens the placement of my feet. The sounds of this space through which I pass are music to my soaring spirit. The sights lure me ever onward. The process carries me ever upward – higher and higher.
So I ask you, “How can you not run?”
