“There were many times where I genuinely didn’t think I was ever going to run even like three miles again. And so, there was this period where I was trying to let go of it because I didn’t think that I was going to be able to do it and that was really hard, like grieving, and then it started to come back and the possibility of it came back and now it makes me feel alive. I’m a better partner now that I’m able to run again, I’m much better at my job, I’m much more efficient and present and all of that just because I’m able to both release when I’m running and fill up my tank. It’s been a tough road but it’s here to stay, I hope, and it’s such a fundamental part of me. I really need it to be there in some form for the long haul—and that’s my only goal, really. Yes, I want to compete, and it’s fun, but I won’t do anything that puts the ability to run for a long time into jeopardy because I’ve seen what that’s like and my life without running is very tough.”
