Head, Bath and Beyond

The latest entry in the “Running is like…” sweepstakes comes courtesy of distance running legend Haile Gebrselassie, who recently said:

“The run is like a bath for my mind and sweat is the water they need for the bath. You are so alive and fresh after a good run that your whole day goes good.”

As running similes go, that one isn’t too bad. Running is like a bath for my mind, too, but that’s because I have a dirty mind.
