I knew I was in love when...

by Terry Mason
(Minnesota)

There are so many times the realization of my love has hit me. I will try to pick a few.


I knew I loved running when I drove by a jogger and immediately wanted to jump out of the van and join her.

I learned to love speed workouts when I had to run extra fast to catch up with a runner ahead of me b/c she looked like someone I could get along with.

And I fell head over heels the day I discovered running's magical powers. On a particularly rough day with my 4 "angels," I took off for a run the minute my husband walked in the door. One mile in, my headache was gone, my shoulders were relaxed, and to my surprise a BIG smile was on my face.

Running gives back what you put in, it is MY accomplishment and it is MY time. I know I am using it wisely, setting a good example, and kicking some a** along the way!

In love NEW
by: http://www.essaykings.me/

I was running only in the period I was in live with my boyfriend. Now I gave it up. You know it's so hard to make myself run, when I think that he won't control me. I've no self respect...

Running to Catch Up
by: Anna

Oh and that part is really making me laugh. You know how often I get my speed training in by running up to the next runner pushing a jogging stroller to ask them how they like it or where they got that toy that sings Christmas Carols and keeps their baby entertained while they run!

Terry, I love this! I especially love that line. That is so true...unlike so many other relationships in life, running is almost always fair LOL.
