The run is always hard, always worth it. This is the reason we run. In a world where everything else we do, we look for ways to make it easier and more efficient. On the other hand, the value of our run comes from its difficulty and the personal satisfaction we get from hard miles. For that reason, some days we set out to find more difficult routes, or even do hill repeats and extra hard intervals, proving the point. The run teaches us that doing hard things, perhaps the hard way, gives meaning to life and may be the only way to truly feel or be fulfilled.
Get out the door, the meaning of life is there to find,
