run your own damn race

I am not competing with you.
I am too busy doing awesome things.
You win.

How fast can I run a 5k, you ask.
How many push-ups can I do, you ask.
How much can you bench, you ask.

Stop looking over your shoulder.
Out of focus, you’ll trip.
I’m right there behind you. Or maybe I am ahead.

Run forward.
Look forward.
Think forward.

What is YOUR pace?
What is YOUR place?
What will YOU do today? Tomorrow? A week from now?

When I drop dead, or
less likely, die peacefully in my sleep,
I’ll know.

I’ll know I ran my own damn race.
I’ll know I lived my own damn life.
What about you?
