Love Thy Enemy

As a runner, you have the capacity to be both a lover and a fighter. I feel overwhelming compassion for the women I fiercely compete against. This year at indoor conference, more women than any year before acknowledged me as a competitor, approaching me to shake my hand and congratulate me on my race – and I was able to return the sentiment. Some days it’ll be my race, and some days it will be hers, and each day, we get stronger striving to defeat one another, all the while loving that she pushes back with equal ferocity.
