Snapshots of Day 6.

“People sometimes sneer at those who run every day, claiming they’ll go to any length to live longer. But don’t think that’s the reason most people run. Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest. If you’re going to while away the years, it’s far better to live them with clear goals and fully alive then in a fog, and I believe running helps you to do that. Exerting yourself to the fullest within your individual limits: that’s the essence of running, and a metaphor for life — and for me, for writing as whole. I believe many runners would agree”

Tomorrow will be the last day. Of course, it will never be the last for these people as they’re probably already plotting out 101 routes they would exploit. But, there’s just a tinge of melancholiness for a wonderful thing to end.
