I love to run long distances by myself

I love to run long distances by myself.

I enjoy the time alone. I don’t listen to music when I run so it gives me time to think, reflect and meditate a little.

I also enjoy appreciating my surroundings. I try to observe things that I may not otherwise see when I am driving by a place.

I love to run through new places I have never seen before. I love to take in the sights.

I love to run long distances by myself!

I love to run in races.

I love the thrill of competition. It gives me the extra motivation to try a little harder. I love the camaraderie, too!

This isn’t sweat, it’s liquid awesome!

I love to feel the first drop of sweat going down my face as I’m running or training. It means I’m working. I’m pushing myself a little harder.

Sweat is magic. Cover yourself in it daily to grant your wishes.

 

I love to wipe the sweat off of my eyebrows as the sweat starts to build up and get heavier.

I love to feel the first drop falling off my nose and onto the ground.

I love it when I stop running or training and I am dripping. It feels great because I know I have trained my body well.

I love to run

I love to run.

I love running outside and feeling the wind in my face. I love hearing everything around me, the leaves rustling on the ground as I pass by, the breeze in my ears, and the trees moving their branches.

I love running in the rain. I love getting completely drenched when running and splashing through puddles.

I enjoy sweating and feeling my heart pounding. I also love to run easy and relaxed and take it all in.

I love running races, looking at people run and having people look at me run. I enjoy the friendly competition of someone being ahead of me and me trying to catch to them. Having them pull away as they feel or see me coming and being able to pass them. Or oftentimes, I am not able to pass them and they beat me. That’s OK. It’s a great feeling to know you have tried your best.

I love the feeling of crossing the finish line at races or simply finishing my run. It provides a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

I enjoy running around my neighborhood and work and greeting others runners or people that are outside.

I love the peacefulness of the run. It is a form of meditation. Relaxing. Fulfilling.

I enjoy long runs. I love to count when I run. Yes, I count the steps I take, sometimes just to see how many steps I need to run a mile. I also count my steps to keep a steady cadence, the steps per minute. I like to sing military cadence in my head and parts of songs that have the same beats per minute as the cadence I desire to keep.

I love knowing that I’ve done my body good.

I love to run.
