Sometimes knowing that I’ll never be an amazing runner eats me alive. Settling for being “okay” and “at least I get out there” is just going to have to be good enough. 0_o

It’s more than just a race. It’s my escape. My way of taking a break from the world and all the stress, zoning out, and entering my own world. It’s about wanting to do better every time i step onto the track, trail, or street. It’s the drive to make a name for myself. It’s about the hard work, self-punishment, and pain I somehow enjoy. It’s my passion.
