    I run… Because I can! 🙂

  2. Love this! I run to feel strong, to be alone with my thoughts, to push myself, to de-stress, to be outside…So many good reasons to get out there!

    I run to test my limits. After being diagnoses with and having an ASD closure in my late twenties, I decided to see if I could finally do it. I completed my first 5K in fall that year and continue to see how far I can go!

  4. For the stress relief!! I ran with a group with morning, which is unusual for me. They were all “going slow” while it was faster and longer than I am usually comfortable with, but I kept up with them and was so proud when I was done!

  6. I run for conversation, to clear my mind, to achieve something bigger than myself, and to become a healthier version of me 🙂

  7. I love that you said “for a tan”. I totally do the same thing. Nothing like a little vitamin D to give you some energy:-)

  9. I TOTALLY run to get a tan, too – haha! I’m super pale and it helps me build gradual base so I don’t completely burn when I actually spend some time at the pool. Love your reasons for running 🙂
