The Reasons that I Believe People (We) Run

When we were  kids we would run because we could, to get there quicker, to chase our friends, to run away from our friends.  It felt great we felt great and we could so we did.   For most of us as we get older we stop running we become…….


Reliant on cars



We forget how to with joy 🙂

….to name but a few things, it can take us quite sometime before we decide we want to run again, I mean really run, not just for a bus or after the dog or the kids a few 100 yards.

These are the reasons I think people begin to run again (in no particular order, ( like they say on Xfactor)

  • To lose weight
  • To get fit so we can run after the kids and the dog when they run too far to fast
  • To challenge ourselves
  • To raise the profile of a cause we believe in
  • For someone we love
  • To be out in the great and gorgeous outdoors
  • To get some ‘Me” time
  • To De-stress

Why did I start to run? Why do I run now?

I started to run to lose weight, I’d lost weight and wanted to lose a little more and stay fit without having to shell out for lots of gym classes and swimming sessions so I began running.  Then when I’d been running for a while I decided I wanted to run in races and I would run to improve my fitness so that I could compete against others and myself.  Then I had the twins and stopped running and found that after I had them my reason to run was once gain to lose weight.  once id lost the weight I decided to challenge myself and run a marathon.  My reason for running became, so I could run 26.2 miles.  When I had run 26.2 miles I decided I loved it and wanted to run another but faster, so there I was with another reason for running to compete against myself and beat my time as you see here my reasons change all the time.  Sometimes I run to make sure I put the work in to achieve my future goals, but the main reason I run is because I enjoy it and if I’m not enjoying it for instance when I am running a mile for a PB time I l enjoy the hard work afterwards.  I run to challenge myself and that is why I am running a double marathon one on Saturday one on Sunday in December.  I still run to maintain my weight and to enable me to eat HUMUNGOUS amounts of food.  I run so I can chat to my mates (mostly runners) and I run to be outside in the sun, in the rain in the snow I run because

  1. Time on my own, escape from work, keep weight down, enjoying the North Cotswolds countryside… An hour’s run with upbeat music playlist puts me in a much better mood!
