I was reading another runner's Facebook status the other day where he posted this quote by Bart Yasso, endurance athlete and Runner's World contributor:
"I often hear someone say I'm not a real runner. We are all real runners, some just faster than others. I've never met a fake runner."
I'd read this quote before, but it was good to read it again and be reminded of the importance of not comparing ourselves with others. It's hard to do, but if we can focus on just trying to do our best and improve on our own individual achievements, I know we could be much happier with each success.
