Many runners will line up to run for an Independence Day race. Locally, there is an annual Freedom Run to celebrate the special time of year as well as raise funds to benefit a women’s center. The words “freedom” and “run” are powerful enough to provide a spark of energy that you can use any time of the year.
We have the freedom to run. Often it’s concerning that people think that you must fit a particular criteria in order to march out the door and pound a little pavement. On one hand, it is quite an honor for a non-runner to think that “crazy runners” have special powers that allow us to drive our legs down the roads of fitness bliss. However, it’s not an exclusive feat that is withheld from the curious few. All you need is the interest and dedication, because you already have the freedom to run. ~trvw
