because jogging is a joke
because I can’t stand clean shoes
because 6 miles is never enough
because obesity is an epidemic
because I’m competitive
because I like a challenge
because I always want to be able to fit into my size 3 jeans
because I like to sweat
because it gives me an excuse to wear shorts any time of the year
because it’s how I self-identify
because I enjoy solitude
because it’s the cheapest form of therapy I know…

but if someone ever asks me why I run, I’ll tell them

it’s because I enjoy it.
