Day 31: New Goal In My Life

” When I look at it from the stand point of that it took 26 days to complete half way It feels that it has passed so quickly.  But when I look closely at each day, the day feels like a whole month or even a year.”

“Back in my university days my aim was to be selected to be a member of a team which competes in the Hakone Ekiden.( very popular relay marathon competition.) “But I was not selected.  I was so beaten by that fact that I stopped running altogether.”

“But then I wanted to have a new goal in my life and that is when I first started thinking of ultra distance running.”

“Now finally to see myself here in the ultimate race in ultra running has become my goal in my life.”

“It is very difficult to say right now at this point whether or not what I will gain when I cross the finish line.  Then maybe even when I cross the finish line I still may not know what I have gained.  Maybe it is something that I will only realize after some months or even years.  At this point I don’t know anything.”
