Married to Running

Yes, I have goals.  Yes, I like to improve.  However, the most important thing to me when running is that I can run the rest of my life.  My runs don't take hours.  My races don't cost hundreds of dollars.  My shoes were bought on clearance.  However, I know that I will run for my mental health, my physical health and my life.  And I will never stop.  Although it changes time of day, location and speed, I have run for years and I have come back from multiple injuries.  I fit it in to my life when I can.  It doesn't consume me. Running and I are lifelong companions.  Some days we hate each other and some days we're best friends.  However, like a marriage, we are always together and we're in it forever.
