To Celebrate National Running Day, June 5th, 2013, Hyland’s asked site visitors and fans to consider these questions and finish the sentence “I Run Because…”
- Why do you run?
- What pulls you out of bed in the morning to lace up your shoes?
- What urges you to fit in a quick run after work?
Here’s what they said!

I just do it.
I love the feeling of accomplishing something a lot of people don't!
It keeps my heart pumping and helps me stay healthy
running eases my mind from all the stresses in my life, it gives me time to myself and time to reflect.
It gets my mojo flowing & clears my head to have a fun filled day with my 4 year old twins!
I love the rush I get
I want to be fit, not thin. I want to be healthy. Sexy just comes with the package!
I love having fresh air in my lungs, the ground beneath my feet, freedom in my mind, and joy in my heart.
I am a proud child of Christ and he gives me the strength and courage to do things I can't do on my own.
It's healthy for my heart! I just recently had a stent put in my heart and I'm only 40 years old!
It's the only excersise I can get at the moment..pluse it is very soothing to the soul and you dont need anything special except a good pair of sneakers and a dog! =)
Because it shows my children dedication, drive, and community.
other's that want to, cannot. I run for them. I run for my own sense of peace. I run to be better than my best.
I run because I can! I love running now after losing 80 pounds. I run while kids ride bikes and can run with our lab or chow. I have a good time breathing all that fresh air and loving being out doors typically in the evening.
I refuse to let osteoarthritis rule my life. I run because I can. I run to be an example that you are not too old to run!
the stress of the day and the negative energy I have bottled up simply melts away as I run and jog. New to running, I began six months ago when my partner was diagnosed with cancer. The best way for me to keep myself emotionally and physically fit is by getting outside and going for a run.
Nobody is going to hand me a healthy heart. I run because only I have the capability to push myself harder and make myself stronger. I run because those extra years I will eventually be adding onto my life will be worth every mile. But most of all, I run because being strong is one, but being Army Strong takes a whole new level of dedication.
I like to keep in shape
It is good exercise
I walk, not run, to help keep my muscles from tightening up.
