Why I Run: Kathy Robischon

2nd January 2013, By: Heather D.,

whyirunKathyRThis is my attempt at creativity (from a Colgate biology major who shied away from any classes that required essays!):

An Ode to Running …

How do I love thee, let me count the ways …

I love the feeling of strength at the end of a long run.

I love the sense of accomplish after I push to a new PR or new distance.

I love watching the sun rise on morning runs when everyone at home is still sleeping.

I love seeing my kids’ faces at the end of a race.

I love that my husband supports my efforts even when it sucks for him.

I love how the perfect song comes on my iPod at the perfect moment in a tough run.

This is at the half-marathon where I tore my Achilles tendon right before the finish. I am on the left and my friend Kelly Knight is on the right.

I love talking to other runners about running and training.

I love picking up my packet before a race.

I love exploring race EXPOs.

I love running skirts and how flattering they are to my legs.

I love a great sports bra.

I love ice baths after a long run, at least once they are over.

I love having a training plan so I can stay on track.

I love the tribe of mother runners who support my running.

I love being a badass mother runner!!
