Runners make great writers. Just look at Once a Runner. (On a tangent, this incredible book was self-published and reminds us all that the big publishing houses are not infallible.)
Not all writers make great runners. Some writers prefer to seek their inspiration in drink.
I dabble in a bit of both.
Let's examine the similarities between running and drinking:
- Both impart a feeling of euphoria.
- Both convince the participant that they can do anything.
- Both lead to the silence of that insidious internal critic.
Of course the next logical step in is for me to start running drunk. If my theory holds, I should be able to create the greatest novel of all time.
