Why I Run
Happy National Running Day! Since I’m a rule follower, here’s my contribution to National Running Day’s “I run…” campaign.
Because it lets me eat like this.
Because all you need is a pair of sneakers (and a GPS watch, and an ipod shuffle, and Body Glide, and a sweatband, and a wicking shirt, and a wicking hat)
Because evolution demands it.
Because I seem like the calm one when standing with a group of anxious runners before the start of a race.
Because I no longer feel safe on yoga retreats.
Because from 2004-2009 I had one pair of pants that I wore every day. (and in 2008, I didn’t really even button them all the way)
Because I really really really really really love ice cream.
Because of the race photos:
Because I’ve got great friends to run with, and they have no choice but to listen to everything I say the entire time.
Because I can obsess over my race times being posted on the internet.
Because if you google “Rob Pollak Running,” this comes up in the image search:
But also this (Another Pollak who’s running … for office! Get it? Zing. LOL!)
Because it gives me something to blog about.
Have a great national running day everybody! Vote Pollak!
