  1. Running outside is just relaxing and an easy way to stay fit and unwind. 10 degrees or 100 degrees I will always venture outside for a run.

  2. I run because it helps me get away from anything stressing me. It’s like my own escape. I run because I’m amazed at what my body is capable of doing. I love running and I am blessed to be able to run!

  3. I love running because it makes me feel free! I will run in snow, rain, sun, and mud- different adventure every time. I’ve also met some of the most fun, wonderful people since I started running just 3 years ago.

  4. I run because when I am running, I am completely free. It’s just me and the ground, not a care in the world. It is my escape, my strength and my passion! I am a run happy kind of girl and trails are my absolute favorite.

  5. I run for physical AND mental health… when you are new to running you may just feel it in your legs and lungs, but once you’ve built a habit you feel it in your mind too (in a good way). However heavy my thoughts may be, running makes me feel lighter!

  6. I run for BEER… well for much more than that, I run for the mental break from work, life and stress, Running resets my mood and attitude and provides a much needed release.

  7. I run so I can continue to run! An object in motion stays in motion. Good for mind body and soul!
