This is truly a relatable video when it comes to long races. Even if you were to shorten in down to the first few minutes. It still captures how an individual feels during a race.

Running requires an immense amount of self-motivation, especially when the runner is not on a team or coached. They soley rely on their own dedication and time set aside for the run. Their motivation mainly comes from the feeling of accomplishment that follows. Long distance running gives the runner 25+ minutes to just be with their thoughts.

A girl with MS is able to run despite her inability to feel her legs. Because of her MS, she may not be able to run much longer, but currently, her symptoms are only temporary. When she runs and her body heats up, she looses all feeling in her feet and legs. By the end of her run, when she tries to stop, she is no longer able to control her legs and she falls to the ground. She runs because she knows that one day these symptoms will not be temporary and the feelings in her legs will not return.
