HI WORLD! My name is Jared Hill. I have recently embarked on a journey to become an endurance athlete. No, I do not want to be the best, nor do I want to be one of the best. In this race my only competitor is myself. I am learning the ins and outs of running: the gear, my body and my mind. Follow me along my path, there will surely be some chuckles in-route.
I love to learn as much as I can about my interests. I do so in 3 ways.
- I find experts (anyone willing to share, ideally people I think are doing it right) and ask them tons of questions until I think they are getting annoyed with me. Then I leave them alone for a few days…until I have some more questions. I extract information from people they didn’t even consciously know they knew.
- I read. I google and re-google everything imaginable about what I want to learn. I read for days, usually months, about what people say is “true” and “the best.”
- I try. I try what I read, and I try the opposite. I believe almost nothing without personal experience. This can be problematic, but ensures something…what it ensures I cannot put my finger on, yet something it ensures none the less.
If you have read this far: Thank you, for your reading this gives my writing a purpose, although writing this amuses me too.
