Tell Us Why You Started To Like Running

Have you come to actually love (or just really like) running? Tell us about it!

Do you think of yourself as a runner, even if at some point in the past you totally didn't?

If so, we want to know how you came to really like running.

Maybe it was kind of blah for the first couple weeks (or, OK, months) until your body got a bit more used to it.

But once running didn't hurt, it felt pretty good. Maybe it transformed your health!

Or maybe you ran a race and it made you feel invincible.

And it made you want to run ALL the marathons. And maybe feeling invincible translated to other parts of your life and since you've become a runner you're crushing it at work and in life generally.

Perhaps you found that it was a great way to de-stress and spend some time in your thoughts.

Or in your favorite audiobook, podcast, or playlist.

Maybe you have a pal or group you run with, and they helped you enjoy your time spent logging miles.

Tell us: How did you come to like or love running?

Whether you run a couple miles a few times per week or have a bunch of races under your belt, we want to hear about how you came to love running. Tell us if running has changed your life — from your mental and physical health to the people you hang with, to the things you do, and everything else in-between!

The more details you share, the more likely it is we’ll feature you in a future post. And if you’d like to nominate a friend or loved one, we want to hear that, too!
