"Running and Love"

One of the best essays on running I've ever read.
"I know this might sound like a lot of emotional, sappy, hippy bull shit but I would challenge anyone to give it a try and see what you find out. Throw away your training schedule, find a mountain and run up it. The next day find another mountain and run up it. Once you fall in love with doing that share this love with others. It can be that simple. At least it has been for me."
Goeff Roes has won, and broken the course record, of every race except for one since he wrote this essay.

He's arguably the best ultrarunner in the world, at the moment.

Remember that when you read this and worry about your training/racing schedule.
