I ran across an interesting article and video on the BBC website about how kids in Kenya will run 10K or more to and from school each day. While this is nothing new as many article have been written about the Kenyan lifestyle using long runs for everything from hunting animals to getting water, for some reason I found this one interesting. Maybe because it is about a girl. I dont know. Anyway, click here for the story.
Kenyan kids run to school
I am a guy who loves to run marathons, and has been gifted with exceptionally slow genes which makes for mid pack finishes in races. If I don't run I become an unbalanced manic fool, so yes...running is my prozac. I believe that the key to a happy productive life is balance. Balance in all areas of your life. If one area is out of balance, all others go out of balance. Come back often as I love to see the hit counter go up!!! View all posts by runfaraz
