Everyone I know that runs, is running from something. What do you run from?Wow. Talk about a deep question when you are sitting with 7 of your other co-workers. My immediate answer was I enjoy running and have a goal of Detroit this fall (even though running in Paris is another goal). But it made me think.
Why do I run? Is it for the exercise? Do I do it to clear my head? Is it just something to do which I enjoy? After a few days of contemplating, I have determined it is all of the above. Running isn't a shelter from life, but rather where I solve (or attempt to solve) my own and the worlds problems. It isn't that I need to get away to do this. I just choose to clear my mind when I run.
This is a short post, but think about my co-workers statement. What are you running from?
