I had a conversation yesterday with a friend. She’s a high school physical education teacher and very fit. During the summer she teaches classes at a local gym and truth be told I’m in awe. We exchanged stories of what we had gotten up to since the end of kindergarden. I hesitantly told her that I had signed up for a 5k and that I was (and am) taking my time to train for it. She nodded in understanding. I then said, “You could probably run a 5k in your sleep!” At this she just shook her head and said No. She had an ACL repair when she was 17 and that running hurts her knee too much. I thought that this woman was akin to Superman and it was a good lesson for me that everyone has their limits and to stop comparing yourself to others.
