Wednesday's Why???????

This is a pretty simple question today. Why, do you do it?

I work in the IT industry but I'm not what I would consider a geek. My answer to any computer problem is, 'turn it off and turn it back on'.

But most of the guys I work with are the types that go home and reconfigure their hard-drive or switch out the Motherboard in the PC that they built from scratch!!!!

So I'm always questioning why they do what they do, but so many times I forget that they're probably wondering why I go out and run intervals on the track in 80º evenings or wake up at the butt-crack of dawn to get in a long run on the weekends.

Are you running from Father Time???

Do you want to be able to eat that Twinkie??

Are you looking a the 2012 Summer Olympics????

That's a hard question!

I'm going to go and have some more coffee and a twinkie and I'll brb (that's geek speak for be right back) LOL...

Running is my "ME" time, away from work, away from parenting duties, away from cleaning my house. But I think what gets me is that whether you achieve your goals in running is a matter of black & white. Numbers, hard numbers, on race results. I love the challenge, and I love that I don't have a boss looking over my shoulder about it.
