If I could give a New Year’s gift to everyone, I would give them the love of running.
What I mean by that is I don’t want people to fall in love with running new race distances or getting faster or personal records. That’s all great. But what I really hope people fall in love with is the sensation of running. The way your body feels, as it moves through space. The way your body feels, when it is in motion.
That’s an addictive feeling. No matter how you age or what happens in life, you can fall in love with that sensation of running. It is a feeling, it is a gift that stays with you for all your days.
