Some people ask me, why do I run? Why do I run in races? Why do I pay so much to register to run in races? Why do I have to fork out lots of money for transportation, accommodation cost and registration fees just to get a piece of metal, we called the medal of glory?
This video has been around in Facebook, especially among my running friends, and it's just hilarious. Coincidentally, it has lots of things in common to runners like me, things that you may not understand. Things like why we run before and/or after work, why are we torturing our legs by running in a marathon, why are we 'stupidly' chasing the 'losers' medals' when we already knew that we don't even have the slightest chance to win a race, bla bla bla...
And the best part is... think about running all day at work <-- this is sooo familiar, at least to me hehehe....
I don't expect everyone to understand why are we doing all those things that look stupid to you but do encourage us or if you can't, just keep quiet and ignore us :-)
