Final exam time reminds me of why I love running so much. Suddenly my well structured schedule becomes “study, A LOT” and my brain goes into overtime trying to add structure to chaos. I know, I probably sound like a head case (no one would argue that)
But this is why running works so well for me. And it’s not just because I can get out on the trails and leave it all behind, it’s because running long distances and working towards a finish line is no different than working towards your degree or your promotion or any other goal. You just keep putting one foot in front of the other. You ignore the doubts and the uncertainty and you trust that everything has a beginning and an end.
And if you fail, well then you try again.
