Call yourself a runner?

I love to run, it is my passion. I have loved running since the first ever run in training for the Race for Life in 2005. At that point I thought 'I will never be able to run'. Now I can't stop! So why do we run? Running wakes me up and starts my day off or winds me down from a difficult day. It makes me feel alive, and even if I am tired and don't feel like getting out of the door I am always glad I did. So is it the fact that I run races that makes me a runner? Or that I sometimes run with a club? No I think it is the fact that I get out there and do it, come rain or shine and the fact that I enjoy and choose to do it that makes me a runner. It does not matter how fast you run, how far or how often. I don't like the word 'jogger'. You either run or you don't. You are runner from the first time you lace up your running shoes.
