what I feel when I run fast

Some of my friends on Daily Mile have commented on my enthusiasm toward running.  I must say that I do enjoy it, do not see it as suffering (unless the bitter wind blows) and enjoy pushing beyond my limits.

To give you an idea of what I feel when I run (especially when I chuck the planned pace and lean into it) I found this clip from one of my all time favorite movies.  It captures the joy I feel when I'm unencumbered by pain or injury or nagging distractions of the world.

Of course you don't have to match my speeds to get the same feeling.  Just be willing push a little harder.  Push a little farther.  And be brave.  You won't know your limits till you push against them.

  1. in running, limits can be self-imposed.there is nothing more liberating than blowing your own self-limiting goal out of the water.
