And a few words about myself:
I am proud of Dubai Creek Strider, he has been running for the past 11 years. The club runners have helped him break personal best times year after year. He loves the commitment of training, breaking physical and mental boundaries through running, and also the buzz of race day.
Nowadays Sam loves the social aspect of running with friends in the Dubai running community, seeing others so passionate about running and giving back by helping them achieve their goals.
There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.”
Every time I run it's with the mindset that if I die at this race, it's OK."
I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”
Never underestimate the power that one good workout can have on your mind. Keeping the dream alive is half the battle.”
The world is actually full of challenges and we need to challenge ourselves. I took a challenge to run that fast. It consumes a lot of energy especially mentally. But I took myself and accepted to be challenged and I challenged the time.”
