It wasn’t until University when running became a central part of my life. Over the past seven years, running has evolved from a form of exercise to a form of existence. I started out running the occasional half-marathons and then gradually worked my way up to ultramarathons.
I enjoy running on the roads as much as running on the trails. They both offer different experiences and complement one another very well. I believe I am a better road runner because I trail run, and a better trail runner because I road run.
What I love about running most is that it challenges my mind as well as my body. Every year, I encounter new physical challenges, which constantly test and renew my mental fortitude. Running allows me to continuously strive towards self-improvement.
