Each of us have our own reasons to run, but all of us have days where we would rather stay on the couch than hit the roads/trails.
If you’re having one of those days, here is a list of reasons to run even if you’re not feeling like it at the moment.
My 17 Best Reasons to Run Today
- Because you live somewhere that’s cold as hell right now, and running will help you stay warm!
- Because you live somewhere that’s typically hot as hell, and it’s actually comfortable outside today.
- Your New Year’s hangover has finally worn off.

- Your dog needs some exercise and you need some exercise, so I guess you’ll just have to bite the bullet.
- You have to go back to work tomorrow. Sorry for the reminder, but you maybe you can run long enough that you’ll forget…
