Why Do We Race?


Why do we race?

We race because it keeps us in the game. (we are not giving up)

We race because we do. (we don’t just try or talk about running)

We race because races make us train. (when it would be easier to stay home, skip, or avoid)

We race because it brings us together. (we are on a team, and together we all get better)

We race because we want to challenge ourselves. (better times and pace combined with pre-race nerves)

We race because it makes us push. (a few seconds each mile, that extra run, that extra push)

We race because we are competitive. (PRs, keeping up, passing that one runner)

We race because we want to finish well. (in life as well as running)

We race because that is what runners do. (and yes, we are runners)
