I had a long talk with a friend about setting boundaries; limitations that will serve as self-preservation techniques, so I’m not constantly trying to pull from an empty source, or cup, if you will.

Back in June, I thought my left hip and hip flexor muscles were injured, only to find out it’s just a bad case of sciatica. Now that I’ve discovered what’s going on in my body, I can start thinking about my comeback. I’m still on pause with running, even though I’m mentally ready to dive [...]
