Your big behind

So you see everyone is ahead of you; already skinny, already fast, already losing... but what you don't see is what's behind you. Behind you are the people that don't run, the people still seated on their couch in the house you just passed on your morning run. The car approaching that will fight for the closest parking spot once they reach their destination. And what about those people who won't ever start. Those who giggle when you say you're a runner... those who gave you all their excuses for not trying. What about those people that started with you and have now disappeared into their own doubt. We are told to look ahead, and leave the past behind us. Somedays it's important to remember where you came from, to remember what's behind you, especially when you are working so hard to move forward. 

In the race,
