My name is Jeff Swain. I like to run. I don’t know why. But I do. I always did. For me running is a quest for transcendence. It’s an opportunity to push beyond my physical limitations to perhaps once get a glimpse of the Divine. For me running is more of an intellectual & spiritual endeavor that it is physical. The motion of running for me is similar to a mantra. It’s what I do to get to places I could not reach otherwise.Running is the closest I’ve ever come to feeling at one with the universe.
This space is designed to capture my journey as it unfolds. I’ll write about my training, fitness, nutrition, and races of course, but, I’d also like to share what the journey is about for me. What makes me tick & why and how running is a big part of it for me. I’d also like to know what you think. About me & my perceptions but also about yours. What is it that makes you run? Thanks.
