Why Do You Run? Why Do I Run?

I found this video on and it really hit home. The video features Anton Krupicka, a highly accomplished ultradistance runner. In the video he talks about how and why he runs, how he constantly works at distilling running down to it's more pure form. You can't help but believe every word he says, he seems so genuinely committed to keeping running as pure as possible and the latest shoe from New Balance is the product of many, many miles and a receptive R&D department.

I'm no ultradistance runner, and I don't feel compelled to use shoes that allow me to get in touch with the surfaces I run on, but dang, this guy's approach to running sure seems contagious.  So, why do I run?

I run for the peace of mind it offers.  For the me time I get.  To get in touch with my surroundings and interact on a more primal level with our earth.

I run to challenge myself and others, to inspire and breakdown. There are ups and downs, I love them all.

I run to stay fit, to stay nimble and risk injury.  With every step I take, I try and grow. I reflect on running, I love running. I run because I can. I run because I want to. I run.
