Running trains me to be a stronger person. Running trains me to refuse to allow my environment to determine my actions. I have never breathed so hard, felt so strong, or faced such challenge as when I am running. Running trains me to keep going, always.
just keep breathing: someone on the half marathon course this weekend held a sign that read “there will be a day when you can no longer do this, today is not that day!”, and I found it to be extremely motivational. I hope that day never comes!
