Born to run

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you’d better be running Unknown

In what way we are different from animals?

As our history tells us we are born to run barefoot. We ran and hunted to survive.

But what is happening now?

Of course, for us running seems to have nothing to do with survival!

We always talk of ‘Running’ in terms of sports or at the most burning our calories for health reasons.

Instead we are busy running our lives.

And we run a unique marathon without our knowledge!

“Life is like running a marathon. It takes a lot of courage and tenacity to keep going till the end”  Fauja Singh

Please share your thoughts on why we are lazy to run on a daily basis?

Thank you.
