Finishing a marathon is a state of mind that says “anything is possible”. Yesterday I completed my 5th marathon – some have been faster than others and this one was particularly slow (thanks John).
The beauty of a long run, to me at least, is the ability to do some deep-thinking – a great opportunity to reflect on things that may not have been front of mind when I am surrounded by screens. And this opens up possibilities to get new things started. It’s a great feeling.
About 2 years ago I completed my first marathon, and it was an introduction into a new world of possibilities. There are no short cuts. Yes, they are hard. Yes, they can be uncomfortable. Yes, you learn things about yourself you never knew. Yes, you sweat. At the end of it you smile.
Kind of like doing a startup.
