Why I haul a sledge

I ski for miles and miles for work, to find my physical limits, to see and become immersed in the wilderness, to go from here to there, to glimpse at insanity and learn how to stay the right side of it, to experience what real teamwork is, to make a break for freedom from the conveyor belt, for fun, occasionally to impress someone, to terrify myself into appreciating my own mortality, to hear people's laugh and my own.'

With thanks to Robert Penn for an amazing format with which to communicate with words. After all the hours of trying to answer the 'why' question in either a one-liner or a chapter of a book, this does the job with far more elegance.
