@livehardxlovehard 💯 That’s how I injured myself last year training for another half marathon attempt - I ended up limping around for 2 months because I was too damn stubborn 😅

Yes! Comparison is the thief of joy.

@drjenniferlincoln Absolutely! When the word “should” pops up in my mind, I have to stop and figure out who I’m trying to catch up to and if that’s a direction I’m even trying to go.
