While running 14k yesterday I had moments where I desperately (for whatever reason) felt compelled to just stop. I wasn’t in agony or laboring through the run physically at all. I felt strong, but wanted to stop. My mind didn’t align with my body.
I had to keep changing my focus, look deeper inwards to find the happiness in the run. I had to gaze beyond the surface mindset of quit-ness and really look beyond the immediate obstacle.
I did. And I ran on.
