All runners need a reason to run and we all have our own reason. It can be as simple as wanting to tire your dog out, or because it’s the weekend or just because you can! There is no right or wrong reason and it might not be the same each time, but there is always a reason.
Runners come in many different ages and sizes. Some are fast. Others are slow. It really doesn’t matter. Once thing is for certain though, it is something that only you can decide to do, which is why it is so much more satisfying when you reach your goal, whatever that may be.



Now it’s over to you. What makes you run? Whatever your reason to run, we would love to hear about it and will be featuring stories from our runners on our FACEBOOK and TWITTER sites:
