Things I Learned from Running

Today, I had a small injury in the gym while I’m pumping my muscles, was very small nothing major and I decided that it’s enough for today, I will go home read, cook, watch documentaries and chill!

But, I received a call that encouraged me to go for a run. Got my shoe, headset, my playlist is hitting my mind and I’m thinking; why do I run?
I used to answer, ‘because I’m good at it, ‘because I enjoy it,’ ‘because it keeps me fit.’

But deep inside; it didn’t meet my expectations. Five minutes later, around 5 guys walking and blocking my way, they saw me running and surprisingly, they changed the way!

"Friends ask why I run. I say, 'If you have to ask, you will never understand. It is something only those select few know. Those who put themselves through pain, but know, deep down, how good it really feels."

I run because I can. Because when I do, there's always the chance to be extraordinary. A chance to start unknown and to finish unforgettable. A chance to overcome all obstacles, to fight through pain and suffering to test your emotional limits and boundaries, to experiment with the potential of the human body and discover just how far you can push yourself. And a chance to feel like a completely different person, a person who inspires others, and who they strive to be.

Running is pretty much like life, there is a start line, there is a finish line, in between you feel suffocating; puke, faint, you feel like giving up, you face unexpected boundaries, challenges, you feel pain in every single part of your body, and you are one puff away from giving up. Are you going to give up?

Don’t give up, don’t give in!

“I want you to take your claws and reach deep inside; down to the depths of your core. Then I need you to pull out that Moutherfucker BEAST that is just DYING to come out! You are NOT weak; STOP IT! Wake up and rip that shit wide open and show yourself and the world just how strong you really are!”

Impress yourself, not others.
