TAG: I am a runner because....

I am a runner because it doesn't feel right until I've gone at least 6 miles.

I am a runner because there isn't enough time for all the races I want to enter.

I am a runner because I get up before the crack of dawn to get my runs in.

I am a runner because I always look to see if there are any cool races in the places I want to visit.

I am a runner because I'm always training for something.

I am a runner because I spend more money on running clothes and shoes than I do on everyday apparel.

I am a runner because when I fantasize about winning the lottery I dream about all the races I can run in faraway places and the extra time I'll have to train.

I am a runner because I like to recover and taper at the same time.

I am a runner because I can't imagine living my life without running!

Rick tagged me. Angie, PNW Runner and Joe...why are you a runner???

Omigosh that is a good one! It's been great following your running for the past year. You are a runner, passionate and devoted to the run.

You have some good ones there, that I can easily agree with :-)

You are definitely a runner. I agree with many on the list, so I guess there's no denying I'm getting to be a runner too. You guys are such an influence!
