Racing limits the true meaning of running
Chi Running, Costa Brava, Runner Testimonial
What is running really about?
We're all missing the point; there's a reason we run, and it's not to make a fool of ourselves in front of our buddies.
I'm going to make a statement: wake up, runners! Don't you feel like hamsters in a wheel sometimes?
I recognized that training for a long race wasn't something I enjoyed doing. The stress of devoting so much time on a single race was too much for me to bear. I liked running for the majority of my adolescence, but marathon training ruined that love. I'm not out on the road to prove anything to anyone, including myself. I simply do it because it is a part of who I am.
Is running equal to racing or there is something else? What make runners equal? their excuses about why they did'nt get a better time in their last marathon.
There are a lot of people who train for a marathon and secretly despise it.
After years of complete sedentarism, I decided to start running again in 2005. My perspective on running at the time was similar to that of the majority of people. Running=Racing, so I decided to start training for a half marathon in Budapest, and as part of my training, I competed in a mountain race, climbing up and down a mountain.
There is a world out there
We is a person who runs a marathon in least than two hours, we will never be able to use running for speed but for something better, explore the world running, that's our give, we can use our body to transport ourselves to beautiful places.
Stop making excuses
There is not point in comparing yourself to others not even in comparing yourself to yourself.
Is about the Adventure, stupid!
It's not about how fast you get there, but how.
At a certain point in our lives we all become a little slower, but our resistance increases, and remains that way for many years, running is the most human activity of all, and it has nothing to do with competing.
Using this ability to transport our body running is a true gift, a blessing of nature, denying ourselves the possibility of going out there and enjoying the world because we are obsessed with improving a mark of a competition that takes place in a terrain where our body does not it was designed to work is an immense nonsense, especially considering that this will always have repercussions in an injury that would end that, with our ability to run.
The world is calling you, it's call nature, mountains, rivers, real people.
The world is a wonderful place, but it doesn't reveal itself on a gym treadmill.
Running has given me some of the happiest moments of my life, when I was alone on a mountain, connected with that moment, with that place and with myself.
What is the point of everything if we are not able to do what our body was designed for in the way it was designed, that is, to meet the need to transport ourselves long distances without knowing what would happen at the end of the day.
The need to know for sure every detail of everything that happens in our lives destroys ancient mechanisms that exist in our brain, uncertainty is our natural state, that is when we really exist, in the fight against the disintegration of oneself , running brings us closer to ourselves, to that animal that we are, Homo Sapiens Sapiens.
