Why you run.

Posted: April 12, 2011 in Running

I tried to listen to running podcast but they are nowhere near as entertaining as comedy podcasts. However if there is an interesting runner being interviewed then I’ll listen to them. For example the Geeks in Running Shoes recently talked to Anton Krupicka. The man is one of those athletic outliers that comes by once a generation.

Anton tried to briefly answer the question why you run but he says it’s something you can’t really describe. I kind of agree with this statement. Another interesting thing he said is to find out what makes you want to run and then pursue that. That way you are not running as an exercise or to get a certain mileage, rather you’re running for what makes you happy.

    Thanks for checking us out, man. We try to keep comedy in the mix with our running discussions. If you want the best of both worlds, check out our interview with former stand-up comedian turned ultra runner Russ McGarry http://geeksinrunningshoes.com/2011/03/14/episode-33-the-half-marathon-special/
