I’ve heard it over and over- “you’re so much more than a runner”. Yet, when running gets taken away from you, it’s pretty easy to feel like nothing at all.
It’s the runs that you really didn’t want to go out for but you went anyways that remind you why you love running so much.
"Have patience with all things- but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You are perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that."
Appreciate every run. No matter how on or off you feel. How fast or how slow. Long or short. Because when you’re injured you would kill for even a sloth like death of a run.
