I saw a post on Facebook referencing a very, very long race. Some say races are “little lives,” you know, may show how we might handle our whole lives. I don’t know about that, but such makes me think and that is good. Anyway, it made me think of the longest, so to speak, race, we will participate in. It’s real. It’s called “life.” I found this tidbit of information on the internet.
The average moderately active person may take around 7500 steps a day. If you maintain that daily average and live until 80 years of age, you’ll have walked about 216,262,500 steps in your lifetime. Doing the math, the average person, with an average stride, living until age 80, will walk a distance of around 110,000 miles.
That’s far. That’s a long race. It’s called “Life.”
Maybe it’s true, that only one “Finish Line” really matters.
