This famous quote says it all!
“There is nothing quite so gentle, deep, and irrational as running–and nothing quite so savage, so wild.” ― Bernd Heinrich
But running has other philosophical dimensions too; it has various emotions say either positive or negative associated with. Some run away from reality and a few runs toward destiny, some run away from being hurt and many run toward love…..The very fact is that everybody is running— either in person or in an act.
A general consideration is “Run to be fit”, but for me running is significantly a consequence. When I close my eyes, I visualize a long and winding road lined by tall trees and myself running on my heels at a speed of a Cheetah. My mind runs and so do I.
It is said that life is short, and in my 30s I consider mine is even more shortened by now. And I have to run, and run faster as rapid walk can’t help at this hour.
I also believe in running my mind into those crevices and heights where I physically can’t make way. With my mind, I happen to see that minute, and with the required calculations, I pace myself as I have a few incomplete tasks to accomplish and materialize some new found dreams. And now on taking to running, it gives a good slumber at night to relax my mind and prepare myself to keep going.
Hence I run as a consequence of the desire to keep my mind racing. Significantly, both are helping each other and I feel the ultimate bliss at day’s end.
