Average? Not Me!

Most people are satisfied with being the same as everyone else, and there's nothing wrong with that. But that's definitely not me. I don't know if it is a curse or not, but i just can't seem to be satisfied with being average. In everything that i do, i strive to be more extreme. I have an innate drive to be more or do more than the average. I'm not saying that being average is bad, or that being more than average is better. So, please don't get me wrong; or think than I am conceited.

To give some examples: The first triathlon race i ever did was a half ironman; most people start with a sprint distance event. The first marathon i ever ran qualified me for Boston by over 20 minutes; most people just want to finish. The first ever ultra-marathon i ran was a 50 miler; not a 50k like most people's first ultra. To finish my first 100 miles run, i picked the hardest 100 miler, the HURT 100 in Hawaii, and AC 100.

It seems that i'm not happy unless i'm pushing myself up to or beyond my limits. I want to excel! Don't get me wrong, it is not easy to excel. I work extra hard to push myself up to my limits, and sometimes i think, "why can't I just be average?" Yes, life would be easier, but i would not be satisfied. I don't want to live with regrets. I don't want to look back at my life and say, "why didn't I do that when I could have."

This is not just in running, but i take the same approach in all the areas of my life.
