Hollman,_Lena.jpg__.jpgWhy do you run? I asked a few of my friends this question, and here are some of the answers I got: “I run so I can eat more!” “I run for my sanity.” “I love the camaraderie of running with a group.” “I run to test myself in competition, and to see how much I can improve.” And here is my favorite, from Barbara Latta, age 71: “I run because I still can at my age, when so many of my friends have given up the sport.”

As you can see, we run for different reasons. Some of us run to lose weight, others to get together with friends and catch up on the latest news. And a few of us run to take home hardware at the races.
