Running isn’t my life.

Running is the post-it note on my fridge.

Running makes your legs hurt.

Running is a party, and everyone’s invited*.

Running just is, and sometimes that’s enough.

Running isn’t my life, but it is a lot of things.


Now for the clever bit. If you take the first letter of each line, it spells out “Rrrraarrrrr” which is exactly the sound I would make if I was trying to startle a bear. And that, my friend, is what running is really about.
