"In football, there's something called a perfect kick ... and there's something called a perfect swing in baseball, and a perfect ace in tennis.
But there's no such thing as a perfect run! There's always a limit to push ... that extra bit of effort to put.
And that's what makes running what it is."
How I wish we could write what running is all about. When I sat down to design a tshirt for the running tribe ... I couldn't do much! It was a far cry from the "regular" sport.
There was something very super-human about it.
So I asked a few people ... who run. Their opinions about "What is Running?" are keyed below ... carefully!
For some, running was a sport where there are no other opponents ... except for one's barrier of pain! For some it was a painful ego-trip, a sport where something so intangible like pain was quantified and measured ... in units ... units like seconds, minutes, inches, and miles ...!
Some opined that it's not like other sports that have a visible goal or an end-point. In running, there's no other goal except for that of beating your-own-self-of-yesterday. Some others said that this is, indeed, a team-sport (!) ... where the team comprises of a struggling you, and your own, hopeful Self ...
Some philosophized that it's a sport where all the fun of play lies in the painful, and torturing performance ... and the end-result is just a mere statistical side-effect of the performance ... !
When I spoke of getting tired and giving up ... they all said, "Yes ... giving-up is always an option ... but you know what!? It never really is."
That's when I said, "Hell no!!! Running is not a sport."
It's a war.
A war. A battle. That's what running is ... ! It's about perseverence ... it's about that last drop of energy ... it's about the persistent struggle ... the dedication ... complete devotion ...! It's about the fight within ... and as much about valour as much it is about glory!
And that's when the essence of this tshirt dawned upon me! I spent weeks (2-3 months) trying to conceptualize the t-shirt, and Asha Patel (gorgeous friend, and the the Head Chef at the Toubé Bäs tee-house worked for weeks herself to bring the fearsome expression on the dashing "RunVeer". Plus, it was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life to spend some lovely poetic sessions while conjuring the wonderful poem on the back! I could say go on and on (like those superhuman marathoners) about the aesthetics ... but we'll let the pictures talk to you ... and we'll let you judge for yourself! :)
