a young lad living an ancient ethic

Like any sport ultra running has its heroes. Everyone who follows the discipline knows of Yiannis Kouros. Not that much is known about him. He doesn’t blog, although still running, the days of his mind-blowing records are over, he’s not involved in the sport beyond his own running, he seems a bit of a loner and excentric, all not conducive to ongoing media attention in the age of celebrity. But his performances make him an exceptional human being. A Greek documentary on his approach to life and running has recently been made accessible by captioning. Fascinating stuff because his drive seems of another age.

Still figuring out the story line that would satisfy myself here. Listening to what my family and friends evoke, what the words I absorb, the images that move me, the movements that still me, point to.
