running stuff

Why do we go the distance? Is it a cult? An addiction? Some kind of penance? Do we have something to prove? The answers to these questions are nearly as individual as the runners themselves. Marshall Ulrich. from his book  Running on Empty

I’d begun running on and off in my early twenties, interested in staying in shape while I was in school. Starting out was hard. I wasn’t fast, and it took a while for my body to get used to it. I stuck with it, running some 5k’s along the way here and there. When I hit thirty, I got interested in running longer distance. I was drawn to it because it was a great physical outlet, mental challenge, and because you could measure your progress so tangibly. I remember running up hilly trail inside of a canyon, then looking down and enjoying the view. Definitely some earned gratification.I’ve had the good fortune to run a number of events, including some as long as 50k – something I’d not imagined doing back when I was starting. I love knowing that I’m really racing against myself out there – my own dreams, more than against the other runners. When you run by yourself, it’s a nice quiet time to think. When you run with others, you’re sharing stories and creating new ones.It’s a great way to feed both body and soul.
