Track freaking blows. I don't see y anyone would want to run a damn race. All you do is make left turns untill the race is over. Whats the point in that. Learn to play a real mans sport like Tennis
"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement." - Steve Prefontaine
There are so many reasons.
You can lose yourself in your workout. Where there's nothing else but you and the track or you and the trail. Stillness. Focus. Somehow disconnection from the world around you and somehow the most connected you've ever been to things. Release.
Major stress relief. It's great for the body and mind. I like the shape that I'm in when I'm in shape from running.
Pushing and accomplishing that extra mile. Shaving those seconds off your time.
It's kind of addictive. It's kinda like a drug sometimes.
