New York, 9/11
"When we run, we are already so exposed, often nearly naked, huffing and puffing, purified by the effort. Briefly removed from the defenses and secrets we maintain in so much of our lives, we feel less need to hide our private thoughts, loves, fears, and stresses. We share."

"Runners have an unspoken bond that’s unmatched in any other sport. We’re trusting of complete strangers. In every other group I’ve joined in my life, trust is earned gradually—it has to be proven. With most runners I’ve met, trust is assumed. We support each other immediately and without hesitation."
How to Protect Yourself Around Negative People


1. Ground yourself, and firm up your boundaries, so you don’t get drawn into their negativity. Otherwise they’ll drain all your energy.

2. Protect yourself. Imagine there’s a bubble separating you from them so they can’t get close and infect you with their mood.

"Running has taught me that we are capable of doing more than we ever imagined, that we can overcome huge obstacles, and that consistency pays off! Running is my sanity and my sanctuary."

Love is selfless.
If your significant other keeps doing things over and over that you told them you are not comfortable with, they aren’t loving you. So please, either change things in your relationship or leave. If they don’t hold themselves back for you, they aren’t your prince or princess that you’ve been waiting for your whole life.

Never forget that you are allowed to question authority if they are doing something you are not comfortable with or do not understand.

It’s called critical thinking. Don’t be afraid to question the world. Just do it respectfully.
