Something really draws me to running long distances.
Inspired by the purest form of human movement over land, it feels ancestral, this urge deep inside to keep moving, roaming.
100km maybe seems long for many people though I felt a sort of calmness inside about the distance. Externally I had some nerves, I have never run that far and did not know how the body would hold up, but inside I was excited to spend a whole day in nature among the mountains.
So much happens during a long run like this one, the heightened senses of running in the dark before dawn up, the warmth of the first rays of sunshine hitting your skin, the moments you legs ache but also the moments when you feel a renewed sense of energy and you feel like you’re floating.
