Why I Run

Sharon Rekieta, Fitness and Wellness Director - 6th June 2012

In honor of National Running Day, Sharon Rekieta, Fitness Director at Lake Austin Spa Resort, shares why she runs!

Why do I run? 

Because I can
Because I can run solo, with my dog or with my running group buddies
Because it's cheaper than therapy
Because I really enjoy working up a serious sweat
Because I want to send that cupcake packing
Because I love to feel the after-effects
Because there are no techniques to learn, moves to master or equipment to buy
Because it's my personal time to think, train, create and unwind.

Although I might hesitate to place myself in the same category as ultra-marathoners, fleet-footed speedsters and serious competitors, I do run; so, I am a runner.

We'd like to hear from you -- why do you run?
