Running is like a friend

Running is like a patient, loving friend who's always there for me.

So are the familiar roads and paths I run. As my feet touch the ground, I feel them welcoming me, happy to see me again.

So I can totally relate to this quote from Nike:

There are clubs you can't belong to, neighborhoods you can't live in, schools you can't get into, but the roads are always open.

  1. I think the scene in What Women Want when they are pitching their ad to Nike. It's something about the road doesn't judge, or I don't's freeing.

    I think about that when I'm running. I've just started and still feel self-conscious. When I saw that scene again, everything clicked. It's about me, not what I perceive others are thinking.

    This post reminded me of that. Thank you.
