This post was originally part of Episode 313 released in September of 2016 and is more or less copied and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.
“It’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
As a distance runner, I’m supposed to love that saying right?
I feel like this statement is thrown around rather often in almost every part of my life OUTSIDE of running.
Stay patient is the message. You’ll get there, it’s just going to take some time.
If a running metaphor is one of the most common metaphors I hear in my life outside of running but rarely within my various running circles, that must mean that runners are good at being patient, right?
