"If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon” -Emil Zatopek.
The most important advantage of running a marathon is developing and possessing a runner's mentality. Runners enjoy indisputable benefits such as good health, discipline, and perseverance, but I believe the acquisition of a runner's mentality trumps all. It is an attitude that you don't wake up one morning and decide to adopt; it's earned after years and kilometers of running in the heat, humidity, rain, and other countless oppressive conditions. But foremost, running enables you to confront life's toughest challenges with relative calm.
Some of life’s toughest challenges are faced by underprivileged children. I believe that supporting the education of a child is the best investment we can make. It helps the progress of humanity.
