I Love Running

Over the past year, I've really gotten into running. At first it was a way to lose some weight and get into some kind of shape, but gradually it has become a part of me and I love it. I love being alone with myself and inside my own head as I'm running on the road and all of the glittering thoughts that fly in and out of my head with every foot fall.
I need to get back to running...I miss that.

[@1322,DayDreaming2] I definitely understand that. That's why I started in the first place. I hated that I allowed myself to get so bad, and started making time for myself.
It was cathartic for me..being alone with my thoughts

[@1322,DayDreaming2] I could not agree more! Most days are so hectic and loud that to be able to get that time alone by yourself and your thoughts feels however you can manage it feels so therapeutic and rejuvenating.
I heard there's like a "runners' high" like they get from running too.. I guess it could he exhilarating 😊 Not to mention healthy .. Sans the knees thing.. Idk :) i like swimming

[@209334,ZeroG] I think it's all about finding what works for you to achieve that high. I've been lucky that my knees have held up good. Plus I suck at swimming lol

This is the best description I've read for that feeling you get when you're in the [b]zone[/b].

[@4431,Serenitree] I'm sorry to hear that, but at least you're staying active. That's a plus!

[@685035,ChampagneSupernova] sort of. At least I get up, get dressed and go out.

[@4431,Serenitree] that's half the battle right there!
That's great! I like running alone also. I'm going to start swimming laps when I get home from my vacation.. I look forward to that and one in one time with my thoughts

The Marines broke me and my knees of that silliness... I’m jealous!

[@348129,3Dogmatic] Ha, I imagine it's a bit different running for pleasure than being forced to run.
