@lululemon: Why do you run? Tag your answers with #WeAsked & we'll share our favourites in our blog on Friday!

you answered

@MissRedWing: I run because I love the music of my breaths and feet hitting the pavement.

@ashleykoehn: After an 8 mile lakefront run, I feel BEAUTIFUL. No need for heels & mascara. Strength, health & confidence is beauty.

@AshmoeNY: I run to prove to myself that I can go the distance & conquer my goals/fears. I run to finish what I started.

@Glorious_Greens: I run to escape the chaos of the day and to feel the strength my body possesses. It is my time to just be in the moment.

@kelhilder: When I run the whole world disappears and I feel completely free.

@khourinya: I run because it is thousands of dollars cheaper than therapy :)

@chrissybajcar: It's a time to clear my head, get away, and just be. I also like pushing my limits

@c5mccorm: I run for my sanity! also, for the feeling of accomplishment that comes with finishing a race or a grueling training run

@erinmarie9: To get outside, push my limits and remove stress with each stride

@syyong: It's my meditation, nothing else matters when i run, the only thing on my mind are my breath, enjoying the air that comes in and out, my steps, my awareness of my body in space

I run because it helps releive stress, keeps me in shape, opportunity to meet new people on the way.
It seems we all share something in common with running, thus why it is a great way to stay in shape.

Have a great day fellow runners, and keep it up!!!

Oh, and thank you for posting something like this for people to share why they run…

I run because I can’t afford a car, and buses don’t usually get to stops on time.

i run because when i run i’m not a mommy, a wife or an employee…I’M SUPER WOMAN….i’m flying…it’s just me, my lulu’s, my ipod, my shoes and NOTHING else matters!

I would like to try running. I will run this year as a goal i am setting for myself right now. I have never been able to run as I was way to heavy in the past. Now I am phsically fit, and one of my goals is to learn to run…Wish me luck…

That’s a great goal to have Lynn. I would encourage going one step further and commit to a date! Create a ‘by when’ for your first run, or what about joining a run group for beginners? This way you have a better chance of success as you hold yourself accountable.

Best wishes on your soon to be running endeavors!
