Why do I run? I've been re-answering that question for the past 16 years. I had so many ideas for how to answer (at least a part of) this question...

But in the end, I focused on why I run right this minute. Which is how I'm learning to look at running. I have a narrow focus on it. I take it day by day and appreciate each run. I run because I can, and I run because in this grown up life it's the part of my day that lets me feel free, young, reckless, and strong, confident, untethered from the stress, exhaustion, insecurities that "adult me" deals with.

So I packed up my little CamelBak and set off for an adventure on my two feet. My recovering feet (only a week from the Eugene 1/2 PR). And I took everyone at their desks along thanks to the magical world of Twitter. #mondaymadness #runlove

All I need, Fa, a long, long way to run hooray!
