The run is often a time for me to clear my mind, go over my to-do list, plan my breakthrough novel and solve the world's problems. Sometimes I forget that I'm running because my brain is so busy. The non-runners don't get that and it's okay. This is a gift for long-distance running. Other times during a run, this euphoria, or "runner's high" happens and it cannot be planned. Some say it's a physical response to the activity. Personally I feel a strong connection to my Lord during those times.
Why do I love running? It gives me time to be alone with my thoughts. It challenges me. It makes me stronger than I thought I was. It's given me some amazing friends and memories. It has transformed my body and spirit.
