跑馬拉松 / Running Marathons

這是我的第六個馬拉松,賽後休息一個星期,讓身體有時間復原.有人說生命就是個長程(我說也是長情)的馬拉松,但會問:跑呀跑呀的為了什麼?到了終點就完蛋了!我認為像跑馬拉松一樣,成功失敗不是完全放在過終點時的一剎那間,而是訓練自己對個人(及同伴拍檔)所有的認識,知道我們的能力和限度.這或許就是內在和外在鼔勵及嘉奨的分別罷.

I just finished my 6th running marathon and am taking a week off to give the body a chance to recover. Some people said life itself is a marathon, albeit a very long one, and in both the physical and emotional sense. If the comparison holds, then the question arises as to why all the efforts when the end does not seem to justify the means. Au contraire, I would submit that the quest to find out the capability and limits of ourselves (and of our partners and co-runners) is really a part of defining our existence. From that perspective, it's not so much the success or failure of our race at the end that is important, but rather the knowledge of who we are during the journey. The internal motivation of self-discovery differentiates those who continue and those who give up because of a lack of external reward.
