"I run because I can"
As I was running my half marathon on Saturday, this statement ran through my head so often it has now become one of my favorite mantras. When my legs became tired this statement reminded me of my good fortune in not only having legs, but having the health to run. With a friend having recently passed away from cancer, and one of my Grandpa's having both legs amputated, I am well aware of the situations that can literally rip the running shoes out from under you. Next time you're tempted to skip a run, think of this mantra and your runners will soon be laced up and ready to carry you through the miles.
