100 Runners

A few days ago I asked several runners one simple question: "Why Do You Run?" The question may have been simple but the answers I got were profound and insightful. You can read all about them HERE. 

Talking to other runners about what motivated them to start running, and what motivates them to continue running, led me to start a new Instagram campaign! The goal is simple: I want to ask 100 runners the same question that they will each answer in one sentence (or as close to one sentence as possible)...

The first question is the one that got everything started ("Why Do You Run?") and I've asked each person to send me a picture of their running shoes to post along with their response...

I decided to start by reaching out to all the runners that were featured on the blog post, but I'm going to continue to share the answers to this question from other members of the running community...

Once I've posted the answers from 100 runners I will move on to the next question :)

If you have Instagram you can follow my blog account @thisismyfaster
And you can join the quest by following the 100runners account: @100runners

I would love to hear your answer to question #1 and feature you on the IG campaign also! All you need to do is:
1. Follow both Instagram accounts 
2. Send me a picture of your running shoes (
3. Tell me why you run (in one sentence)

And you never know... what motivates you to run may just motivate someone else to start :)


  1. I love this idea and definitely want to check it out!
