Other Kinds of Marathons

Runners aren’t the only ones who know what a marathon feels like. The reason many cancer patients turn to long distance running is quite clear, and was explored in depth in the June Runner’s World. Not all of the examples I can think of are as serious as cancer, of course, but this list is just a reminder to myself what a metaphor running is for LIFE (cliché, cliché, somebody please arrest me). This is going to be an ongoing list, and I will let you know when I add to it. Also please send suggestions!

  • Cancer
  • Becoming an adult
  • Playing guitar at a restaurant for an entire evening
  • Driving 15 hours in one day
