Recently someone commented that I had been doing a lot of running and must really love it.  I had to confess the truth that I still don’t. It seems funny to me that I continue along this running road when I do not like the actual activity of running. Which made me start to wonder why I am still doing it. So I started thinking about some of those reasons.  As I have stated before it has more to do with what running does for me than the pleasure (or lack thereof) I experience while running. But lately near the end of my runs, particularly when I’ve pushed myself I get a sense of peace on earth, good will to men (and women, children, puppies etc). If that keeps up my longed for “love of running” may not be far behind. In the meantime I’m sharing with you some images that sum up some of the other reasons why I run.
