Why I Run – a photographic journey

There are so many blogs celebrating the benefits of running. Pages of declarations of love for the sport, claims of super powers and life-changing experiences. I could probably fill a book with what running means to me and how it has shaped my life. Rather than subject you to that I thought it would be more powerful to explain it in pictures. Pictures, do after all, speak louder than words. I always run with my phone and therefore I always have a camera. This is why I run:
For stunning views that are always differentIMG_1747
To be the first to see the seasons changingIMG_0295
To strengthen friendships and catch up on the gossipDSCF6839
To encourage others to runrace for life 1
To be a good role model for my childrenIMG_0467
For canine exhaustionIMG_0518
To see hidden gemsIMG_0428
For fundraisingIMG_1281
To let me indulge, often and guilt freeIMG_0482
For adventures and laughterIMG_1940
To race and succeedIMG_0241
For solitudeIMG_1770
and because I never know where the road might lead me…..IMG_0484
That’s why I run

    I love this so much! It sums running up so well. With that many benefits, surely everyone would want to run?!

    • I know! I do understand however that it’s not for everyone. Finding something that you enjoy is the crucial bit. Participating with others helps massively in motivation #running
