The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner


A friend was fat earlier. About two years ago. And then he started running. Every day, with a passion. Just recently, he ran a half-marathon.

Team sports is for the needy, the needy for people.

Individual sports is for the individualist.

Long distance running is for the introvert.
