True health and fitness takes time, not money. But in our pressurised world, time can be something of a luxury. It’s not one all of us can afford. I am reminded of how apt it was to call the doco about Anton Krupicka’s once epic training schedule Indulgence. He readily acknowledges the privilege of having time to run, as all of us should. A truly fair society would allow everybody good access to what is today a privilege, but was once universal.
So we can see how our training is one of the most valuable investments we could make in ourselves. It also has one of the best returns.
So share the wealth! Encourage and support friends and family looking to train. And treasure your own training - luxuriate in it. After all it’s nice to think that by the end of a trail run we might be filthy and stinking, but we are also filthy stinking rich.
