  • I'd say mine if for peace of mind, clarity, and just a pure sense of wellness. It's what makes me feel alive in this world.

  • First I enjoy the challenge of pushing myself. Second the feel of trail running makes me feel so alive. Third it gives clarity in my head for work. That's brief enough.

  • Very close to Steve's. I run for the personal challenge that running provides whether an elite or a new runner.

  • I started for health / wellness / fitness reasons (well, after high school anyway, when I started doing it for the competitive challenge and social aspects). And I really like it. Such a great feeling, especially this time of year, to put on your shoes and get outside and be able to go anywhere, using only your own muscles, no machines or fossil fuels. I love that runners high, when it is achieved. And I still like the social aspect of running, and am trying to run with others / groups more often (though I still do like my solo runs a lot, and I think they'll always be in the majority).

  • Because triathletes have to, and aqua-velo duathlons are a little weak. Sorry, no romance for running here.

  • Because I can't not run. Hello, my name is Rachel, and I am addicted to running. For real. It's starting to scare me.
