Today my running partner and I ran 10 miles. We got a late start (my fault). It was sunny and very hot. I was tired. She was tired. The stars were just not aligned for a good run. I'm not ashamed to admit that today, I ran for coffee. Yes, with each step I took, I could only think about the iced mocha waiting for me at the end. We runners; we run for our health, for our sanity, for a good cause, blah, blah, blah. You get the point. Once in a while, though, it more simple than that. And that's ok. Personally, I think it's good to have something to fall back on. Not every run is going to be a great run for me, but it's guaranteed that after every run, no matter how it goes, the coffee is going to taste damn good. So let's hear it. Why do you run? Take us beyond all the standard reasons, the ones that make you sound good when you're explaining it to your friends, and tell us what else keeps you going. Leave a comment below and you will be entered to win a tube of nuun (12 tablets) in the Kona Cola flavor. It's fizzy and delicious and another good reason to run. The winner will be picked randomly and announced on Wednedsay, August 1st. Run on!
