A runner's constitution

Lazy Girl Running posted her running manifesto earlier today. A great idea, courtesy of Run Dem Crew.

Here's mine:

Running is… just putting one foot in front of the other. Nothing more complicated than that.
Running is not… for fish.
I run… on roads, off roads, in races, in circles.
I run for… me: my sanity and my happiness.
I run because… I say I can.
I run when… I need to clear my head and when I want to fill it.
I run with… little grace but lots of optimism.

I have never run… without a good sports bra.
I have always run… and greeted other runners.
I run in spite of… it being the sport I have least aptitude for.
I don’t run… on a full stomach.
I should run… like Phoebe once in a while.
I might run… faster, one day.
I will run… if I want to.


  1. Thanks for the link. I love both manifestos and am off to compile mine.

  2. What a great idea - think I'll add that to my front page just to remind me why when I lose the spark. LOVE the phoebe run - I did it today for about 10 secind running down a path with my friends dog and no one else around. It felt awesome!
