Before workout, for 90 minutes while stuck in traffic:
|Very realistic dramatic reenactment|
If anyone were to ask me why I run, my answer wouldn't be for my physical health or looking good. True, staying in shape is a big plus, but the real reason is that it helps me deal with my day. When my commute eats up 90 minutes of my morning, or I have so many to-dos that I'm going a mile a minute, or last minute changes have me scrambling to fix something - running helps me take things in stride so that I can come home and enjoy a relaxing night with my husband.
I believe that runner's high is a real thing, and that everyone can benefit from a daily run. Or jog. Or cycle. Or power walk. Doesn't matter what it is, as long as it gets you moving and gives you those happy feelings.
