Why Do You Run?
Author and Physician, Dr Paul T. Scheatzle of Bailey Rehabilitation tells us,
“There’s nothing like it!”
“I run to get to the finish line. I run to achieve my goal. To win no matter what time I get. To get my heart beating and to breath in the fresh air. To get outside and see the world. I run because all I need is me, my shoes and an open trail. To feel the runners high and stress melting away.”
I have gone through many phases when I get out of the habit of running and it will again become a chore. And until I embrace all wonderful benefits that Dr. Paul Scheatzle mentions above, I have difficulty enjoying myself. When I take the focus off of the physical act of running itself and put it on goal setting, nature, and camaraderie, the difficulty melts away to reveal a relationship with my body and mind that only running can provide.
