Quote Of The Day
“For the past year, the sport that has given me so much joy over my lifetime, the sport I am lucky enough to call my ‘job,’ had simply become that: a job, a chore. I found myself going through the motions instead of approaching training with passion. Simply, I’ve realized after a lot of reflection, I fell out of love with running, losing the fire to compete. I found myself seeking happiness through performances, thinking that running fast or winning a certain race would ultimately make me happy, but I’ve learned that’s not the way it works. In running and in life, you need to find happiness in the daily process, whether that’s training or just living, before you can enjoy the end result. … I think I felt for the past year and a half that I’ve been spinning my wheels in the mud. For some reason I wasn’t having the success I thought I could be having. I wasn’t mentally in races. I would get to the start line of races thinking that there were places I’d rather be. I wasn’t enjoying the process of running or training any more. I was purely seeking validation through performances. But even if races went well, I wasn’t happy.”
