I run because I can
By jengemmill on July 06, 2012
I run- not because I am the fastest, tallest, quickest runner- I do it because I can.
Women's Half in St. Pete
I run because I am blessed to have 2 strong legs and an able healthy body that can log multiple runs each week.
I run to keep my body healthy and strong.
I run for my kids so that they see a mom who takes care of her body and views physical fitness as a privilege, not to be taken for granted.
Women's Tri in Orlando
I run with my husband- taking time to spend "shoulder time" together.
I run even when I want to rest- I try to push myself to set goals that are obtainable and challenge myself to continue to strive for my best.
Goal- NYC marathon 2012
I run because it is cheaper than most sports.
I run for the solitude- time spent alone with God and my thoughts.
I run because others can't run.
I run the race marked out for me- the one that God has ordained for me.
Psalm 1:2 "But her delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law she meditates day and night".
