All My Marathons

I started running marathons in 2001 and currently run one per year. Marathons for me fulfill in large part the natural human desire for pilgrimage, which our secular society has lost touch with for the most part. Since I combine my marathons with traveling to another country, learning about the city I will run in, and becoming as fluent in the language as I can, it's a year-long physical and intellectual preparation culminates with the excitement of getting on the plane and flying off to the Holy Land, so to say, to be put before the test.

The excitement of traveling and arriving and being in a foreign country at some point turns to a certain amount of fear and doubt as the start of the race approaches, and I experience the uncertainty that I will be able to complete the full 42.195 kilometers again. And after the 30K point, the race increasingly becomes a spiritual test as your physical being is gradually reduced to exhaustion as you begin to rely on your spirit and will to keep taking one more step, at some point imploring God to allow you to continue on. And when you finally see the 42K sign and have only 195 more meters to go, the fear of having to quit turns into the realization that you are going to finish, in Athens this point was running into the Panathenaic Stadium, in Rome it was running down the Via dei Fori Imperiali towards the the Colosseum, and in Berlin it was running through the Brandenburg Gate, all unforgettable moments of peaking exhaustion, joy and gratefulness of being able to finish another marathon.
