There is something so deeply fascinating and attractive about endurance sports – running long distances, cycling, mountaineering. I find my adrenaline soaring when I watch videos about them. The grit, the determination, the perseverance, and the massive amount of stamina required to endure the pain in these sports is just incredible.

After all, life is an endurance sport, isn’t it? The race is long, and your ability to endure through life’s down and outs, and take them in stride shapes your path, your character. To emerge from them stronger, and thrive beyond makes the joys and the highs of life all the more beautiful.
