Why Runners are Superhumans

Why Runners are Superhumans

 

Runner DNA

Every person has a runner within themselves. There is something built in our human DNA that makes running so natural and instinctive. Running heals us both physically and mentally, strengthening our bodies and, most importantly, our minds. However, running is an ability that is unlocked through difficulty and struggle. Once you overcome this struggle and develop your body and your mind, you receive a deep sense of satisfaction and develop peace of mind. You realize that you can overcome obstacles in your life, no matter how grand those obstacles may be, one step at the time.

 

 

Brain Power and Brain Weakness

We, humans, have a fear of discomfort. Our brains are created based on a blueprint that is thousands of years old, and it is built on an even older foundation. The oldest parts of our brain are there to ensure that we do enough to survive and reproduce. Unfortunately, if we want to achieve anything past these basic needs, we need to make a leap over this primal wall. This wall represents the real meaning of the phrases: “You are your strongest enemy” and “You have to win against yourself, before you can win against others”. The reason why defeating yourself is harder than winning over someone else, is the fact that you have to work against your mind every day. This is something that runners understand, because running requires consistency.

Open Sea of Opportunities

On the bright side, things get better the longer you exercise your mind to overcome these obstacles. You gain momentum. Imagine going to the beach and starting to swim into the open ocean. The waves will beat you and pull you back to the beach, and they will get larger and stronger the further away from the beach you get. The waves do this up until a certain point. Once you get far enough, you will actually start to get pulled in the other direction, towards the open water. The point at which the waves shift can be related to what happens when we run consistently. Instead of ocean waves, we have brain waves, which are pulling us to stay in bed and sleep for another couple hours, pulling us towards procrastination, mediocracy, and minimal effort to survive. Breaking through these waves, and reaching the turning point, eventually turns the waves to the other direction. Past this point, we feel uncomfortable staying in bed, not putting our running shoes on, not putting effort to strive for our dreams and fulfill our life purpose. As humans, we have the ability to shift the waves, and unlock our superhuman selves.

 

 

Running is one of the ways we can turn the waves around for ourselves. Mentally, it is not easy to become a runner, but it’s one of the quickest ways to transform. Running does not require a special setting, we don’t need to have any special equipment, or professional help to start it. All we need to do is put our running shoes on and run.
