Long distance running

It is a unique activity of extreme level of solitude for hours with preparation over months where one goes into a hypnotic crusade with oneself to explore self, rekindle own life events, and wait for the golden finish line of success.

Message to all …
Having done 5 full marathons so far and with a desire to do more, I can say that everyone can do it. Just overcome fear, set your own speed, and finally enjoy the finish.
A full Marathon (42.19kms) is never a race, it’s a challenge to finish, a triumph over own fear, anxieties, and endurance…. Overall, a total mind game.
