Why run?

Why run?

Why spend the time, the wear and the energy?
Why force yourself out no matter the weather, the time of the year and of the day?

Because sometimes, you feel like you are moving against the tide.
It is raining and you are going, ever so slowly, right into the wind.
It is blowing straight through your already soaked clothes.

It is yelling
"THIS ALL YOU GOT?"
straight in your face.

Then, you can look up and answer,
the shadow of a smile on your face:

"No."
