If You Could Choose Any Job in the World, What Would It be and Why?

No, scratch that.  Superhero’s have way too much responsibility.  Spiderman taught me that.

If I could choose any job in the world, it would have to be one with little to no responsibility.  At least that is the way I feel today.  Tomorrow things could change.  Tomorrow I may be willing to take on the responsibilities of a superhero.

But today, if I could choose any job in the world, it would be a marathon runner.  Not just someone who runs marathons, but someone who consistently places high enough to get endorsed and paid.

I could see myself running 26.2 miles multiples times a year.  During the off season, I would run fartleks on the beach mixed with long distance runs, all on my toes since I am a toe striker.

I’d eat well.  I’d sleep well.  I’d be tanned.  I’d have strong lungs, strong heart.

And I’d truly understand the meaning of the mantra:

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
