Why Did You Run Today?


Earlier today on Twitter and Facebook, we asked a simple question. “Why did you run today?” Everyone has their own reasons for lacing up their running shoes. The responses were both unique and universal. If you need a little bit of motivation this weekend, check out the answers below.

It helps me clear my mind of the world, it makes me feel like i can do anything after, and it’s one of the few things that make me so happy. – Katie D.

But almost everyone did say that they run because they can. And there is no better reason than that.
