I'm running because running is an important part of my life. It keeps me focused on health. It's a time when I can meditate on life. A source of spiritual growth. Gives me an opportunity to set goals. Teaches me to accept failure. And how hard work will eventually lead to success. But I would have never experienced many of these benefits if it wasn't for the running community around me. I want to be there for them, just as they have been there for me.
