Give and Take

Distance is one of the only things in life you truly earn. Anyone can give you nine pies, but no one can give you nine miles. Nine miles you have to take.
Marc Parent, My Sweaty Little Secret, The Newbie Chronicles, Runner’s World

This can definitely hit in many aspects of life. It takes a great deal of hard work and time to accomplish some large feat. It puts it into perspective – we can’t just be given something and be satisfied, we have to earn in.  People who say “oh, I couldn’t ever run 6 miles” don’t try hard enough.

But I do love some pie.
