Why running is so awesome

  • It's outside and free
  • I get to listen to music
  • There is nature and animals all around me
  • There is no machinery assisting my efforts.  It's all me, baby!
  • When I do well, I feel amazing - huge confidence boost
  • When I suck, I am motivated to do better
  • Sunshine
  • Feeling accomplished and unstoppable when done
  • Knowing, and FEELING, physical improvements in my muscles and breath
  • Having the next challenge to look forward to
  • Exploring is fun!
  • People watching is great!
  • There is no TV or computer or game distracting me
  • It makes me feel normal and not such a lazy couch potato
  • Fresh air
  • Movement
  • Healthy obsession/addiction
  • Saying hello and smiling to complete strangers
  • Knowing that someday I will be good at it
And the number 1 reason why I think running is awesome:
  • It's the only thing I do that I'm not multi-tasking.  And I don't over analyze life.  I spend all of my thoughts on the moment. I can focus 100% on one thing and that is pretty fucking amazing for me.
Exciting news....  Jenn started the program yesterday!  Go Jenn!!!!!!!!


  1. Man, and I was excited that I ran for 3 minutes yesterday. HA! Actually I have a goal to be in a 5K before I'm 30 and preferrably not die doing it. That's yet to be determined.

  2. Only 4 1/2 weeks ago I could only run a minute. Just over a week ago, I was impresses with three minutes too! You'll get there!!!

  3. The only running I do is to the car and back. Now I feel bad and unhealthy.

    I love to see people passionate about running though, so keep it up!!
