It hurts, it's solo, it's repetitive, it can take ages...so why do you run? Why not other sports? Why don't you go to the gym instead?
I never really asked myself this until recently, but I realised that I run because it's the only physical activity i'm good at! I've never been actually been that great at any sport, but i'm half-decent at running.
I also realised that I run because it's hard...weird but there something about doing something difficult and accomplishing that is satisfactory....and I can do it on my own because I hate relying on others.
So why do you run?
