I admit it. I’m a total nature nerd. I love the outdoors—camping, hiking, swimming—you name it. But I live in a pretty populated city where trees are disappearing faster than ever and giving way to new housing developments. And since I’m holed up at home most days writing, it can be hard to feel connected to the great outdoors.

Until I go on a run, that is. I love being able to float among the trees, alongside the creeks, and just breathe the fresh air. There’s nothing more rejuvenating.

  1. I absolutely love this post! Running make you feel like you can fly and my favorite part about it is the self-awarenss it brings.

    This sort of self-awareness–knowing my limits and my strengths gives me courage to face life’s adversities…what about you?

    Running is addicting, especially that state of mind, but I currently have an injury…what do you suggest and how do I mentally get through this without the regular surge of endorphins from my morning run?

  2. Running has took me from a size 18 to a size 10 in 90 days. This was also in addition to a change in my eating habits.

  3. running is awesome i do it at the gym well because i have allergies but i still wanna stay in shape so yeah
