Why is the kinetic friction less than the limiting friction?

Initially it requires more force to break the interlock between the irregularities of two surfaces. But once the block is in motion, it takes time to interlock between the irregularities of two surfaces. Also, the body gains the inertia of motion. So, the kinetic friction is less than the limiting friction.
