I Hate Running… But This Is Why I Do It
Running sucks. Anybody who says "I love to run" is either delusional or a liar. Yet I try to run every day. It has nothing to do with exercise or health.
The reason I run these days is because of my oldest daughter, Tess. Recently she's shown an interest in running. But because running is such a lonely task, she's asked me to go running with her. I grudgingly agreed and I've been lacing up my shoes every day since. But like I said, I hate it. I was just about to have a talk with Tess and explain to her that I just couldn't keep running with her, when the other day I came home from work and found this:
How can you stop running when you get a note like this from your 8 year old? Oh well, I better stretch. I don't want to pull a muscle.
