I’m feeling extra grateful today.
There are so many people around me that share their love, time, and energy with me. People that have more confidence in me than I have in myself. Thank you, community, for providing me the space to grow and thrive!
This picture was shot as I ran through Columbus, Ohio on my @peopleobjective transcontinental run. This day, I attempted to beat my marathon PR. I decided to quit the attempt at mile 9. This experience gifted me an unforgettable realization that seems so obvious now: you can only achieve new limits if the goal is important to you. I quit the attempt because the PR goal was not very important to me and my body didn’t want to push through the heat and exhaustion of that hot July day. Maybe I’ll find importance in setting a marathon PR in the future, maybe not. 📷: @carlinguthrie - 2 days ago
