There is just so much to do in this world, so much to experience,
and it would be so terribly wrong of us not to do so. As runners,
we have an opportunity, every day, to rise above the tedium and
experience life to the fullest; and having a list of things to do
before you run your last mile is a way to keep yourself focused not
on the finish line of your life: but on the joy of your life’s
race, while you’re in it.
