Why Do You Race?

By Pete Williams

Many reasons to race

Recently I wrote a story for CorePerformance.com where I asked a bunch of my endurance athlete friends a simple question: Why do you race?

I thought I’d get a bunch of similar responses along the lines of fueling the competitive fire, staying in shape, etc. Instead, I got some varied inspirational advice.

CorePerformance.com is a terrific Web site that grew out of the Core Performance books I’ve had the honor of writing with Mark Verstegen.

I’m guessing we’ll revisit this topic in the future. Why do you race?

    Don’t run ahead of me – I won’t follow, Don’t run behing me – I won’t lead,
    just run, (or paddle, or crawl, or bike, or climb or, or ) along side me and be my friend.

    Great work Pete – see you at the surf show.
