Was sitting down chatting with some non-running friends recently and someone made the comment about "making it look easy". I thought back on a moment in college with my coach and shared it with my friends. Coach told me, "when you set a personal best, it will hurt, when you run good it hurts". Did not truly grasp what he meant at the time because like many, we had witnessed guys like Dathan R. @djritzenhein, Alastair C. @alistaircragg & Boaz C. @boaz_c78 make winning look soo easy. Pretty much, nobody else was winning when I was in college except these guys so we never understood how it would feel 😂⁣

After the conversation with my friends I took a scroll through some of my favorite wins and tried to debunk my college coaches statement that winning always hurts. I failed. Every pic you see ending in victory also ended with a ton of pain and uncomfortable moments. Seems sadistic to think one would continue for years chasing the pain train. I accept the label and the challenge ✊🏾 Just a small #protip. If you want to perform at your best, it will hurt so the quicker you #embracethepain, the quicker you can focus on the goal at hand!⁣
