How to Run with the Bulls

David was an accountant who wanted to make some significant changes in his life. And he did. One day he decided to experience real danger in his life.

“I am unsure if I can go on like this.” He says to the motivational cat poster on the wall. “My life is nothing but a blur of boring, a real anti-climatic black and white movie that has features no sound. Something needs to change, I need to experience danger.”

Pressure of Adrenaline: Run with the Bulls

Although it may appear that David is insane, spilling his feelings to a poster. There are a lot of people that may feel the same way. Where can one go to feel alive again? To feel the blood pumping through their veins as the pressure of adrenaline builds and builds until you explode with excitement. I have an idea, it’s time for you to take an adventure to Spain and run with the bulls.

Bulls Festival in Spain

Thrill seekers from all over the world travel to Pamplona to experience the famous Running of the Bulls festival. It’s an annual event in which a group of people runs in front of about a dozen or so bulls in a sanctioned-off subset of a town’s streets. Believe it or not, this dangerous race actually has a very high participation rate. Moreover, the festival is extremely popular among travelers.

Bulls are beasts that can weigh up to 1,380 pounds; they are responsible for 15 deaths in the event since 1924. The adrenaline rush must be intense, as each runner has to cross an 875-yard course, that’s almost 9 football fields. Once you start, there is only one direction you can travel for behind are the raging bulls closing in quickly. The only way out is to safely finish the course or to hop over the walls on the side.

Get out to Spain!

The time is now, David. I cannot sit back and let you waste your days calculating numbers and ruining your posture by sitting in a chair all day. Get out to Spain; be free with the beasts and run like you have never run before. Just make sure you are faster than the slowest person participating.
