Meet Emma Smith #48 shown with her Lake Oswego teammates, she is a blogger with Youth Runner. We asked her why she loves running and this is what she said.


Why I love running:

I’ve played a lot of sports so far in my life including basketball, volleyball, soccer, and tennis. The one thing about running that is different from other sports is that in every run, if you push yourself hard, you go outside your comfort zone. Each race you get to know yourself better and how far you can push yourself. An even better feeling is when you cross the finish line. Knowing that you pushed through the pain is phenomenal. It’s like having every good emotion going through your body at once. This is why I love running.
