I Wanted to Run

Thursday, July 18, 2019

What was I thinking, getting up at 4:30 am to run even if it’s drizzling and then giving up after two kilometers when it started to pour heavily and relentlessly?  Why didn’t I just stay in bed and luxuriated in the peacefulness of that early morning hour? It’s because I wanted to do it. I wanted to run. I wanted to feel my heart accelerate as I pounded the pavement. I needed the comforting monotony of running the same route over and over again. I crave for that feeling of utter exhaustion and serenity—the spent muscles and the clear head—after a long run.

I run because I can; I run because it makes me happy.
