Many many times I've been asked why I do what I do. It's hard to explain, yet simple: "Cause I like it". Why I like it? That I don't know. I couldn't explain it, but this is who I am.
"No one told me who I was. No one told me I should do this. No one told me it would be easy. Someone said I am my dreams, that if I don't dream I am no longer alive. My steps follow my instinct and take me into the unknown. I no longer see the obstacles behind me, but look forward to the ones ahead. It's not about being the fastest, the strongest or the biggest... It's about being myself. I am not just a runner, mountaineer or skier... or even athlete. I am a person. I don't know if I'll find it, but I'm going in search of happiness. What am I looking for? To be alive." Summits of My Life
