On this February 14, I’d love to share why running is my Valentine. At least one of them. Let’s talk about the reasons why.
Running Is Always There
No matter what, I can always go for a run. When I’m sad or stressed or angry, I can lace up my shoes and head out to pound the pavement and get myself back on track.
Running Keeps Me Healthy
Even when I don’t feel like taking care of myself, running ensures that I stay healthy. When I get outside for my miles, I’m getting good cardio, fresh air, and getting my heart rate up! These are all positive things for my overall wellbeing, whether I like it or not.
Running Keeps Me Motivated
When I run, I set more goals for myself. Goals keep me motivated. What’s even nicer is that my goals have plenty of room to adjust and evolve through my training, which keeps me from getting bored or discouraged. Only a Valentine could offer that kind of incentive.
Running Lets Me Splurge A Little
I love treating myself, and when I run, I find myself to splurge a little more often. From new running gear to delicious dinners, running always makes sure I get to enjoy.
Running Takes Me To New Places
Traveling to run in new locations is one of the best gifts running has given me. I love travel more than anything, and running is the perfect way to join my favorite sport with my favorite hobby.
Running Brings So Many Of My Favorite People Together
What’s not to love about that? Only a Valentine could give me the gift of so many incredible friends, all over the world.
I am linking up with Kookyrunner and Zenaida this Tuesday for Tuesday Topics!
What do you love about running?
So true! You are right, running does bring us to new places. Not many tourists end up on a running trail with beautiful views. They don’t know what they miss out on!
Travel is truly the best part.
