Running Without Titles

An old friend recently contacted me. He was surprised I was still running. His first question was “did you make All-American in college”? Nope.

I didn’t know there were certain requirements to continue running. Pretty sure the roads, trails, and tracks are still open. Pretty sure my coach isn’t concerned with my lack of All-American status. I know I’m certainly not.

I told him I was running, Allie-style. He laughed.

The truth is that I don’t really care how many girls next to me on the starting line were All-American. Nor do I care that most people were completely shocked I decided to continue running after college.

I hope you don’t either. I hope you’ve realized that no one but yourself stands in front of you and your dreams. I hope you follow your heart no matter what crazy road it leads you down.
