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.
