Between what you know you’re capable of and what you feel like that day. It’s the barrier you have to push through to gain.
It feels terrible. It’s breathing hard and sweating and taking that next step. It’s aching muscles and empty stomachs. It’s going on when you want to turn back. It’s making it through the next mile.
We don’t face the gap in every run. Thank goodness. It is capable of breaking the best runners. It is capable of making the best runners. It’s a choice.
