Why Run?

I didn’t do much this weekend. I worked and stayed home and watched the CSI shows that I recorded. Everyone else seems to be on vacation of some sort. The weather is warm which is nice hopefully it stays like that when I get my days off.

Summer has been quite eventful, and now it looks like its winding down. So what’s next for me? Well, I’ve been getting back to my running routine. I’ve been running at least 3-4 times a week for the past year up until a few weeks ago. I got sick and had to put it off for 13 days to be exact. Many of my friends ask me why I like to workout much. The truth is I don’t workout much at all. I just run mostly. I rarely lift weights or do any kind of resistance training and when I do it’s usually a light workout. The funny thing is when I was younger I hated running. I was fine with sprinting, and I was pretty good at it. Running for longer than 30 seconds wasn’t my cup of tea. I hated long distance. Now, running 4-5 miles a day is pretty much a usual thing for me. As for sprinting, it’s almost non-existent.

So why do I like running? I like it because its relaxing. Other people like to meditate, paint, or write poetry. I treat it like a hobby; like a collection of stamps or comics. Mine is just a collection of miles.
