About

Why was Hooray Run created?

As a runner, I know there are days when it’s tough to get out the door and go for a run. I look for motivation and reason to put on the shoes and log the miles. I created Hooray Run (HR) with the intention of providing myself and every other runner with encouragement to put in the work. HR is for all runners—not just one specific group—and even if you consider yourself a non-runner, you can find inspiration here.

With HR, I ask runners why they choose to put one foot in front of the other. They give reasons why they started running and share wisdom. These runners tell stories and offer advice. I call this section of HR, quite simply, Runners.

Additionally, HR showcases running art (photos and write-ups) on this online platform. Runner’s High holds the photos. As for the write-ups, please peruse the Writings section.

If you would like to add to the HR journey or ask more about the project, click Contact. I hope HR can elevate your love for running and help keep your feet moving.
