At Chafing The Dream we run for many reasons (just visit our About page), but some of our best runs are just for the pure joy of the run. It reminds me of being a kid and the pure joy experienced from playing pickle (or hot box) in my grandma's backyard, wading in a creek, or exploring the woods as if I was part of the Lewis and Clark expedition. For my husband this childhood revelry is from playing baseball. For his mom and my daughter it would be a little private time to draw and play dolls. Hopefully, we each have memories of just "being a kid" and are lucky enough to be able to watch our kids or grandkids do the same.
