After the other thread stuff to put you off running, what keeps you running!
That feeling of being in really fit good shape is a feeling i can't be without, and am struggling a bit now it's currently gone by way of injury!
Combining some good music with a good hard run is my favourite feeling...yep you heard me!!
Being able to have a massive choice of thousands of races all over the country is great too. I can't wait to get back and just pick random races to visit weird and wonderful..ish places. can't wait to get uninjured and explore some new places and races, some that are a bit outside the normal scope of locality, to escape the usual faces and rivalries that build over years.
i love the pansy little running vests to run in, the feeling of being cool in even hot weather is terrific. especially when it's a club vest, tho i am considering giving up my lovely yellow and blue club vest for a new clubs bland red one! doh.
The way that you have to keep disicplined with both training and eating, ina way football at park level you don't have to. I used to play sunday leage football and players would "entertain" me with "hilarious" stories of late nights, bad food booze, yet still think they can play the next day. shocking
