Why Do I Run?

Why do I run?

I run because I can.

I run because I was told I would never be able to again.

I run because there’s significant chance I might not be able to ever again once my ankle is fused.

I run because when I run I feel truly connected ~ mind to body to ground.

I run because it feels like everything else just melts away and I can see clearly.

I run because the first time I ran after my accident the look my children’s faces were ones of fierce, unfiltered pride.

I run because every single time I do it I am proving something to myself, crushing my limits and winning on my own terms.

Why do I run?

Because I can.

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing I hope you know your reasons why.

Love D.
