Running obsession

obsession-with-running

The obsession with running is really an obsession with the potential for more and more life.

– Quote by George Sheehan // Found in Run!: 26.2 Stories of Blisters and Bliss by Dean Karnazes.

I often think of the things I would miss out on — or wouldn’t make the most of — if I wasn’t a runner. Things such as sunrises and sunsets; empty, quiet city sidewalks; the first warm day of spring; the first cool day of fall; the first snowfall; playing in puddles. Little things that on their own may not mean much but combined contribute to a very full and very content life.

A life I’m obsessed with.
