Can I just tell you how amazing my teammates are real quick. We ran 5 miles today at a relatively chill pace(7:50/mile pace). We were also all super chatty; my favorite type of runs. We were taking turns going around and sharing different trials/struggles/frustrations we were going through.
It was so heartwarming to see the whole team, without any judgment, really listen and then comfort the one who were sharing.
It came to be my turn and I shared my current frustration with racing. I’ve been feeling like I’ve hit a wall in the mile(breaking 5:30) and how I feel so upset that I’ve had so many opportunities to and I just can’t seem to break it.
Well without a second of hesitation my entire team goes around and takes turns validating me, telling me I’m more than how fast I run, reminding me to remember my strengths and focus on those, as well as so much more. I literally almost teared up as they said all these things. It was exactly what I needed to hear.
I have no idea what I did to have such incredible teammates. It breaks my heart to know that I only have a few short months left running with my best friends❤️
I just want to challenge you all to try and surround yourself with people who support, love, and help make you better. It really does make all the difference. Okay I’m done now, thanks for reading.
I love you all!! #afxc #believe
