- I'm a distance runner.
I've been trained to keep going even when it's hard. When it hurts. When it hurts. When it sucks. When I don't want to.
I look past it. Relentless forward progress to the finish.
Call it what you want, stubbornness, endurance, determination, guts.
Deep down, I don't know how to give up.
(And it's always worth in the end)
