"You are meant to fight. When you are sick, your body fights for its right to function. When you hold your breath, your body fights for its right to breathe.

my favorite part of running is that with every workout and every race, i’m proving to myself that my body is capable of more than i would have ever thought possible
Fuck yeah to the kids who feel like they’re dying inside but still gather up the strength to roll out of bed, get dressed, and leave the house. You are strong and beautiful and worth so much more than you know.
