Human beings aren't faster or stronger than most other animals on Earth. We are pretty smart, though, and we have an uncanny ability to keep things in our heads for a long, long time. Plus, we have endurance like nobody's business. It's incredible how far we can push our bodies. We can move ourselves over incredible distances with very little food, and the whole planet knows the sound of our footsteps.
I can run about 15 miles at a go--maybe more if I was chased. I want to run a marathon soon (26.2mi). I think running builds my endurance and makes me a better frontman for my band. I think my running affects every compartment of my existence. I hope to be in the best shape of my life before the end of this year.
