Life is like running a marathon 🏃


When you reach 50 you’re around the midpoint of life.
Halfway on your marathon.

You shouldn’t sprint at the start to burn yourself out.
You should be careful along the way to not fall or twist an ankle.
You should drink and eat well along the way to maintain your health.

Running a marathon also teaches you to plan ahead.
Which translates again well to life.
Looking after your health, mind and money from as early as possible pays off in later life.

I keep finding parallels between running and life lessons.
Sometimes they immediately make sense.
Other times it takes a while to sink in and become apparent.

Running is life
Life is running
