I am a runner.
I rise long before the sun breaks the horizon in an unedning search for my own limitations; I witness those limitations crumble beneath the balls of my feet and I begin my search anew.  
No bodily pain will deter me.  No mental weakness will hold me back.  The strength of my will alone will deliver my goals.  
I fear not the heat nor cold, rain nor wind, light nor dark, nor any force of nature.  I have become, through the fortitude of my spirit, my own force of nature.
I am a runner.
