Why Run?

Having a moment with my 2008 NYC finisher's medal.

In The Complete Runner’s Log: A Training Diary and Fitness Guide, author Sean Keogh starts off with a section about why you would want to run.  He states:  “Taking up running should be an offer you can’t refuse.  For the cost of a pair of running shoes you gain membership to a health club that is open 24 hours a day, and never more than a few minutes away.  Most importantly, it is a free passport to a side of yourself you may never have enjoyed before – a healthier, more relaxed, more confident you.  And running will take you to that new you faster than any other activity.”
