Quote Of The Day
“It really just turned into a job that I wasn’t enjoying anymore. My entire career, I loved competing and I eventually learned to love training and that definitely wasn’t the case for the tail end of 2015 and early 2016. … I was in such a dark place, mentally, and so frustrated with running that I was ready to do anything I needed to to move on and be done with my running career … Basically, I had gotten 95 to 99 percent out of what I had to offer in track, but the marathon … me and my wife just knew, there was so much untapped potential left … I’ve been so fortunate to be a runner this long and I don’t want to, years from now, look back and wonder, What if? on any section of my career. I’m kind of at peace with how my track career went but I’m not at peace with my marathon career.”
