This is so true. I think its part of what's great about being a 'runner.' It's not like being a trobone player, where you have to be pretty good to tell people you are one. If you go running today, you are a runner.
Those quiet minutes when it’s just you and your breath and your blood pumping in your ears. Those are the moments that define us as runners, that make us stronger, challenge us, push us to want to do more, be more.
