Why I LOVE Running
10 You get to go over your limits. When I was still a couch potato, I used to think that 5K was very far. But now that I’m highly engaged in running, 5K doesn’t cut the mark at certain points – you get to craving to move more.
09 Finisher’s medals, freebies, and those colorful singlets. Lots of proof that you can pass on to future generations.
08 A much leaner body? Running is the key!
07 It helps reduce carbon emissions at a certain point. Saves you on gas, too. Instead of driving to your destination that’s just 1.5 kilometers away, why not run for it (or walk, as the case may be)?
06 Before, eating used to be called “lamon sessions”. Now, it’s called “carbo-loading”.
05 You get to go to places you never thought you could reach on foot. Case in point – reaching the Mactan airport in Cebu 11 kilometers away from my condominium simply by running. How cool is that? =)
04 This is a sport which doesn’t need lessons (unless you’re aiming for competition-level running). All you need is a pair of legs, some comfortable shoes, and determination. =)
03 Increased aerobic capacity. The more (and the longer you run), the more your respiratory system can tolerate. IMHO, chicks dig men with huge chests. =P
02 It gives you that unexplainable “high” that no other sport can give.
01 Why walk when you can run? =)
