WHY I RUN


WHY I RUN

I run to
:
Purge the falsehoods I have had about my limits; to enlarge and redefine the world within myself; to explore new worlds and stake a claim there—forever changed and forever changing .

A new world; a new me, to be discovered in the miles. The world appears wider, larger than before and I seem bigger, taller, peering from the mountain through the haze of pleasant fatigue, soothed in the balm of that glimpse of glory which can be found in humble, trivial and otherwise meaningless pursuit.
