What Defines You?

I Realized last night as I was running along the Tumwater Falls bridge that I had placed so much of my identity in my running. Running has been the one thing I can turn to that will always make me feel confident, give me a sense of accomplishment, instant satisfaction and help me through whatever thing I'm struggling with at the time. I had to force myself to think about what I would do if I could no longer do this activity that has been a huge part of my life for the past 20 years. It hasn't been easy to accept that one day I might have to give it up, and wonder what I would have left... What would my life look like without this and how would I replace the runners high? Some people who have injuries turn to drugs to make themselves feel better, I haven't resorted to this yet, but I can say that I have been smoking more this week. I went to the Vitamin Shop last night and picked up a bunch of Supplements to help rebuild the damaged cartilage and restore my joints and synovial fluid. The woman at the counter recommended a few thing that have helped her, as she told me her story and how she used to be a runner; now she lifts weights instead. I'm cringing inside when I think that I might have to resort to lifting weights 😟 It's just not the same... What is something in your life that has defined you but have recently had to give up? Share your story and thoughts... 💭💖
