i am ready.

Why is it that human beings crave competition? 
and why is it that we always want to win it
In order to achieve this, we have to race
But what is it that compels people to run
miles upon miles;
put themselves through
hours upon hours
of training
To prepare themselves for the ultimate test. 
Not just of physical strength, but
just as much mental. 
To take on the beast;
the marathon.  26.2 miles. 
Because it is fun?  We enjoy the pain?  Or is it the fact of
doing something most people are not capable of? 
The simple conception of feeling
triumphant over the enemy of impotent
These people are insane. 
I am ready
to become one of them.  Just on a much smaller scale.
