Sunday Running Motivation: Running is a Test, Not a Game

Games require skill.

Running requires endurance, character, pride,

physical strength, and mental toughness.

Running is a test, not a game.

 A test of faith, belief, will, and trust in one's self.

So hardcore that it needs a category all to itself to define the pain.

When game players criticize,

it's because they aren't willing to understand,

not because they're stronger.

Running is more than a sport; it's a lifestyle.

If you have to ask us why we run,

you'll never understand,

so just accept.
