I’m inundated with these thoughts after I’ve ran, they won’t let me be. So here it is, to live forever on the internet, out of my brain.

Why I Run:

Because it’s therapeutic

Because it’s uninterrupted time with myself

Because I know it is good for me



Because it’s an escape

Because it’s freeing

Because it unclouds my mind

Because it makes me feel powerful

Because it makes me feel strong

Because I feel in control

Because of the stress

Because of the worry

Because I am determined

Because I am dedicated

Because I achieve the goals I set

Because I want to be healthy


10 years from now

60 years from now

Because I know I won’t be able to forever

Because I want to walk without help as I age

Because I’m 27 and healthy

Because I can

Until tomorrow, Meryn
