Benefits of running according to me
1. Feeling better physically
2. Emotional benefit of pushing through stress and other emotions
3. Sense of accomplishment
4. Enjoying it!
5. Health benefits
6. Helps me to mentally overcome obstacles (similar to reason 2)
7. Promotes time to think ("me time")
8. I'm not fast, but I feel God's pleasure when I run
9. I have goals and it helps me accomplish them
10. Once I start running and get out the door things get much easier
Please comment and help me remember more reasons why I run (especially when it's cold, dark and windy)!
