    1. Following points excite me to run :-

      1) It builds up the “don’t quit” spirit and lets me walk an extra mile in my life when things get tough and I am about to give up.

      2) It helps me release all negative energy in the sweat.

      3) Running let me enjoy the natural scenery of a place.

      4) While travelling on vacations, I believe that a long run is the best way to see a city in the shortest amount of time.

      5) Running helps me create camaraderie with fellow runners.

      6) A marathon feels like a festival with the festive vibe in the atmosphere.

      7) Running keeps me immunity up and i dont fall sick while running regularly.

    2. The feeling that you have control over something in your life when you’re training and that sense of accomplishment when you finally achieve your goal. Also beers, I run for all the carbs! 🙌

    3. Makes me work hard towards a goal, be in tune with my body and push past my limits. I love running on vacation as it lets me see a new city from a different lens!

    4. Running is freedom! Setting a goal helps me get out the door on a rough day and keep pushing during the training and race.

      Athletic is great Wish it was available in more places!

    5. Why do you love to run?
      – I have been running since 2015. It all started with a 5K run at the GoodLife toronto marathon when I got burned out at work and wanted to do something to change my lifestyle.
      – Then I got the runners’ high. The adrenaline to cross the finish line; all the running groups in Toronto have helped me tremendously. Thank you CRIT ( Chinese runners in Toronto) to get me started from all the weekend long runs in North York. I will forever be grateful for all the love and support I got from CRIT to train me from 5k to full marathon in 18 months.

      Now, living by downtown west, you can often see me run with PDRR on Tuesday, RunToBeer on Saturday or Sunday …

      Why I love running? Thats all the people I met during the runs. All the good vibes 🙂 running is my meditation, is it yours?
