Blog posts about running.
Why running? To do something for my heart (literally and metaphorically). To challenge myself. As a way to (re)connect with nature, to clear my head, to meet like-minded people.

I have casually run throughout my life. I do not really recall how it all started, but running was always part of me. Early memories of running with other kids around the block. It was always recreational. Running/jogging with friends. For fun. For the pleasure of it.

I have started competing in 2008, when I was 35. I took part in 2008 half marathon that year. Twice. Got hooked on. Competitions are great to keep motivated and organized. And of course to push oneself a bit further.

A running event marks a particular milestone. Sets a well-define target, and by participating you leave a trace. Part of me disagrees with this, and part approves it. I think I do not truly got to the essence of running events yet. I need to gain a bit more experience. After doing my first ultramarathon I know I do not know how to run. I know I was doing it wrong. I’m self-taught, never had a trainer. It is simply a journey, my journey, and I like to explore it myself. Self-discovery perhaps appeals to me more than the running. Running is just the “means” not the destination. The more I run, the more running becomes secondary.

I thought I knew how to run, but the 100km event in Nasby taught me a good lesson. Learning about myself throughout the process. My thinking. My training. My eating. My living. I feel as if running helps me to be more myself. To grow.
