The Quitter Inside!

Ahh if it were only that easy. There is a 'Quitter" inside all of us waiting for the perfect moment to make his presence known. When to listen to him and when not to heed his frantic calls for mercy is one of the toughest decisions an ultra runner has to make. Not listening could mean injury or serious ill effects.  Listening could mean giving up on ourselves and our dreams. I was comforted the other day to learn that even the best elite runners wrestle with this same quitter demon inside of them. Thanks Gary for your funny and  insightful post and all the best with your most recent set back which is not funny at all;-( Sometimes we have to QUIT but we don't ever have to GIVE UP!
