Have you ever run just to enjoy the things around you? It is this that makes running something I love; something I would do if I could earn a living for it. While it may not seem as though running can greatly change the world, I believe that it can. Through charity events that raise money for good causes, or running to inspire others to change their lives are just some of the ways that running makes the world a better place. There are even runners who run for those who cannot.
To make this dream of running for a living a reality, I would make it a goal to continue to run and train for special charity events. I would also ask businesses to sponsor me, allowing me to earn a living while being able to donate large amounts of money to the cause the event was benefiting. I would also form a running group with the same goal of sponsorship and donation in order to spread this idea to other areas and causes, with the goal of eventually having similar organizations across the globe.
