I run for myself. Not for a race. Not for anyone else. Not against anyone else.
Without a phone. Without a watch. With just my running shoes and me.
I depart to explore a new part of the world like the explorers did, only if it is for a half hour expedition. I run to take in the surroundings of the outside world. I run to move forward. I run to keep my body fit. I run to take in the cold air and feel it in my lungs. I run to separate from everybody else but me. I run to lose focus on everything except my steps.
I run, most of all, because it makes me feel good.
