As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better. I so need to remember this right now and remind myself that there's better out there for now.
effort is like toothpaste, you can always squeeze out just a little bit more. Isn't it amazing how much you can still squeeze out when you think it is time to throw the toothpaste away. I think that is how it is with running, I have a bit more in me!
