Running is a great equalizer.
All we need are socks, shoes, and clothes.
It doesn’t matter how much money we have.
It doesn’t matter what neighborhood we live in. The square footage of our house doesn’t matter.
It doesn’t matter what kind of car we drive and what material possessions we own.
It doesn’t matter where we went to school and what kind of work we do.
When we’re running, nothing matters. It’s just us running the roads together.
Runners are accepting. Runners are welcoming. Running unites people from all walks of life. No questions asked.
We learn a lot about strangers when we run together. We don’t judge others based on the things we’ve been conditioned to look at because we don’t know. So we look beyond and dig deeper. We get to know the people not the things they own.
