I ran 20 miles.
The second my watch hit the 20 Mile mark, I immediately got on the grass off the trail, sat down, and cried.
I didn’t cry because I was in pain (I was) or because I had just ran 20 miles and it sucked (which it did). I cried because never in my life did i think I could do that. You battle your weight, you battle injuries, you battle limitations on your body, and you battle your own mind. Years of those battles take a toll on you until you don’t really know who you are or what you are capable of. I am not defined by my bad back. I am not defined by my weight struggles. I am not defined by PCOS or chronic fatigue.
I am not defined by anything.
