When I tell people I run every day, some are quite impressed. "You really must have a strong will" they sometimes tell me. Of course, it's nice to be praised like this, but I don't think it's merely willpower that makes you able to do something. The world is'nt that simple. I think I've been able to run for more than twenty years for a simple reason: It suits me. Or at least because I don't find it all that painful. Human being naturally continue doing things they like, and stop doing what they don't like. No matter how strong a will a person has, no matter how much he may hate to lose, if it's an activity he doesn',t really care for, he won't keep it for long. Even if he did, it wouldn't be good for him.
Em dic Belén, un nom amb el que mai m'he sentit còmoda. Si hagués tingut una filla m'hagués agradat dir-li Cristina.
Jeg hetter Belén, et navn som jeg aldri har følt komfortabel. Hvis jeg hadde en datter jeg ville ha likt å kalle henne for Cristina.
