I run for many reasons, but most of all because it is good for me. Running is so peaceful to me. I feel like it gives me a time when I can think and be stress free. I love running in North Carolina because it is so beautiful here. We live in such a nice area right next to a golf course and country club. I dream about having the homes that are in this area. The runs are challenging because of the hills, but in the end it is worth it. Here is just an example of my run this morning and how beautiful it is!
