"Why do you like running so much?"
You shall find the answer in this post.
Reason #1. I love the thrill of moving in fast pace and being ahead.
Moving in fast pace? Doesn't running long distance means jogging in slow pace you wondering? In fact, to choose over short distance, middle distance or long distance, I would pick middle distance. Not too far, not too near, just the way I like it ;). I secretly hate long distance ;).
Reason #2. The hard work you put into practices, turns into reward you get from the race.
In fact, this implies to only sports but even other stuffs like, work and studies! In running, training is the key to good runs. No shortcuts. The reward you get from races? The recognition, pride, medals.
Did I mention I have a fetish for medals? (Unable to display all my medals due to space constraint)
Reason #3. Running is one of the best solutions to a clear mind.
Last time, when I feel down or empty, I go for runs. Running is a great way to release stress, and in fact, healthy too! Unlike other de-stress options like smoking, drinking and drug abuse :). A resolved mind, a healthy body. It doesn't get any better from here.
Reason #4. Running is a great way to stay in shape, fit and healthy.
If you have intention of losing weight, I suggest running or even swimming would be a great way to lose the kilos. Taking up this sport would improve your cardiovascular health, improving your heart capacity. Those who run regularly are less likely to experience bone and muscle deterioration as they age at the same pace as those who do not run regularly at all. Among the psychological benefits according to researches are runners typically report being happier and feeling less stressed than their counterparts who do not run or exercise regularly.
Did you also know running regularly is also a way to have a nice, firm ass?
Reason #5. Simply increases the chances of you running away from trouble :).
Running away from robbers? Running away from mad dogs trying to bite you? Running from abusive wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend/mother-in-law? It all involved running. Train yourself to run and save yourself from these crisis :P.
What are you waiting for?
Put on your running shoes and run :)!
I shall end my post with a quote.
