When I say “no” and convince myself that I’m too tired to keep running, my heart whispers, “yes, yes, yes”.
And when I start thinking that I don’t deserve to win or get better, my heart says, “win against time because time demands the most humility”.
When I run my best, I make time slow down, and then win against it.
And when I reach outside of myself (and abandon the “no”s and my fears), I make time slow down and I win gracefully, like a bird skimming the surface of the water.
