The Perfect Explanation

June 24, 2014

I know this is old(er) but it’s one of my favourite running missives of all time. In the event you have somehow missed its epic-ness, please check out The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances. Part six in particular (yes there are six parts – read them all) explains it better than anything else I’ve read or wrote myself. Most of us aren’t ultra-marathoners, but I think many of us share his reasons for running and experience those same emotions.

The post has obviously struck a cord with a lot of people out there. Not only is there now a book based on it, there’s a race weekend as well! Ian and I tried to sign up, but sadly registration was full. Not surprising considering the theme and the fact that the water stations will also have cake and nutella. HA!

What do you think? Has he nailed running for you? Can you relate?
