People always ask me: “Why do you run?”
There are many answers to this question. But one answer that most people would expect to hear is that “I would like to stay healthy…”.
I can give you 10 more answers to this same question that many people may not want to hear but are true…
Here are few things that I am thinking right now…
1) Just because I can
2) It clears my mind and soul. I discover and rediscover myself during some of these runs and races. Especially after 20 miles during a marathon, you have to go deep inside to find your soul to answer the same question people are asking.
3) Death is unavoidable for everyone… but if possible, I would like to prolong my life. I am doing my part to stay and live longer. I hope God does his part too.
I still do not have full answers to the question. Give me 10 years (I hope I am still running then). I may have an answer for you by then.
