### Running

I became a runner in 2010. While running, my mind enjoys the total relaxation and the overwhelming intensity of the so-called

endorphins release. I could think freely on math, physics, and philosophy (just to rephrase Kant held the view that freedom is thinkable, yet unknown to be achievable or not, such an agnostic rationalist). I have run three full-marathons, and many half-marathons. My ultimate goal is to qualify for Boston Marathon, as well as to finish an Ironman Triathlon.
