As per my usual routine, I ran home from work. Tonight’s run was just an easy 9 km run but I find that every now and then something about a run that reminds you why I enjoy running.
I am not sure what it was tonight, probably the sun and warm temperatures, but I had this experience again tonight. Thoughts of what I enjoy about running were stuck in my head as I made my way hme.
First of all, it is a great way to take advantage of nice weather on a day like today after spending the entire day in in an office building. It is certainly more pleasant than getting stuck in traffic while driving home or riding a crowded bus.
I also find that I feel better when I run regularly. I find it to helps leave me in a positive mood when I get home from work no matter how my day went.When I do run in the morning before work I find that it helps wake me up leaving me more energized for the rest of the day.
Finally in terms of the competitive aspect, I enjoy the challenge training for races in the hope of meeting the goal I set for myself and possibly beating a previous best time in that distance.
What is it you enjoy most about running? Do you ever find yourself reflecting on that while out on some of your runs?
