Running Philosophy Day 6: Buy the ticket, take the ride

"Buy the ticket, take the ride." Hunter S. Thompson's words from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas hit me hard.

For me, they seemed like a call to dive headfirst into life and embrace the highs and lows, the risks and rewards of every adventure.

It's not just about reckless abandon. It's about accepting challenges, pushing your limits, and saying “yes” to the unknown.

It's about knowing that discomfort and uncertainty are part of the deal and that the journey is often more important than the destination.

This idea changed how I see running.

It's easy to forget why we run, to get obsessed with goals, or to compare ourselves to others.

But running, for me, is a way to adventure, to experience life.

Disclaimer and notes on this series:

This blog series is a collection of my musings on philosophy as it relates to my passion for running. It's not a how-to guide or a set of rules. These are just my daily thoughts and questions, not my final answers.
