tiana cherie burne's curator insight, November 4, 2014 4:43 AM

 

I believe that if you are going to run a 2 hour long marathon, a cash prize shouldn't be the reason why you are doing it. It should be for like if you want to achieve something, you have a passion for running, if it's for charity or even if you just want a challenge. No for money cause money may control our lives, but it's what destroys and becomes of us which is scary, money just too materialist.
