Pain is good. Life is good!
Maybe this is a common man syndrome. I am not sure if you ever feel like this before.
Sometimes I do enjoy being normal. Not having to swim, bike or run. Not having to worry about diet and training. I work till 6 pm. Go home then go out. The past month gone by just like that.
Life feels just a bit empty. It feels like there is something around the corner that I am missing. Something incomplete.
There is a film festival in Toronto next month...one of the movie is a documentary treking three men set to run across the Sahara Desert. That's running 10-12 hrs a day for 80 days over 4,000 miles. Wow.
I scoped the website. One of the runner, Charlie Engle, is an elite endurance runner. He has a video of what he is all about.
When I saw that video, it brought me back to life. Just seeing him travelling to places most of us will never go brings a comfort I rarely feel in my normal life. Getting to know people around the world that I will never meet. Incredible.
I almost forgot about the joy of going long :). The joy of an adventure.
I am not here to prove anything. I just want to live....
Note: I did a 20 min run today. It felt good. I am so outta shape :).
