Why do I run? It’s a question I constantly ask myself after every excruciating mile and after every weary step. Well as a friend best put it, I’m a fat man too cheap to buy a new suit. Growing up I’ve always been skinny and regardless of what I ate the weight would just stay off. Nowadays it seems I pay the price the next morning for the midnight big mac run. Yet I find myself constantly struggling to stay motivated to run. I haven’t been running regularly since the last Half Marathon in March. The more I run though the more I recognize how fitness is a lifestyle and not simply a goal. I found this article recently that helped me in getting back into running after a long hiatus. Remember it’s not how often we fall but how frequently we jump back up and RUNBEST!
