I love running. I've found that no drug, no drink or substance can offer me the same feeling. When I'm running, especially on a trail, I feel alive. I love the feeling of my heart pounding. I love the heaviness of my breath. I love feeling like an animal. I don't know what it is but the further and harder I run, the better I feel and the more I want to do it. I have tried meditation, yoga, and various other types of activities to attempt to replicate this but all have failed. I want to run and run and run until I collapse exhausted and happy. I don't know why I do. I love running.

To my legs, I love you both so much. I'm so attached to you. Thank you for all the lovely runs you take me on. You've never let me down even when you have ached and haven't felt like it. Today, as a special treat, I'm going to soak you in a warm bath and give you a rub dry. Then tonight, we're going for a romantic outing to meet other legs that run. I love you legs. Always and forever.

Why I run. I run because it makes me feel free. There is no other feeling that can compare. For the hour or so I put aside for myself to get out and run, I remain virtually thoughtless. Running is my 'me' time.

The body does not want you to do this. As you run, it tells you to stop but the mind must be strong. You must handle the pain with strategy. It is not age, it is not diet. It is the will to succeed.

REAL CHANGE only happens when you WANT IT, and want it a lot more than you fear it, and want it a lot more than you fear staying right where you are now. 'Til then, you will only commit to the level of dipping your toe in the deep end of the "Change Pool" and lie to yourself that this "PROVES" you are not at least "TRYING" to change. No, you are not.
