My son baby Jacob
Went for a late night run tonight and came home 16km and 82minutes later at 11:34pm. Longest run i've done in a while.Average pace 5:07 not too hard but had to concentrate on maintaining proper pacing at the end.
People can't understand why a man runs. They don't see any sport in it. Argue it lacks the sight and thrill of body contact. Yet, the conflict is there, more raw and challenging than any man versus man competition. For in running it is man against himself, the cruelest of opponents. The other runners are not the real enemies. His adversary lies within him, in his ability, with brain and heart to master himself and his emotions.
