In case this needs reiterating . . . I am a slow runner.
I'm okay with that, it takes time and patience and I am getting faster.
However, today I was running the track at the gym
and this older man was walking very fast.
It took me FOREVER to pass him . . . RUNNING!
(Granted the man was probably 6'5" and I'm 5'4")
I came along side him, ripped the headphones out of my ears and said:
"You walk as fast as I run and it's driving me crazy!"
He smirked back and said:
"Be grateful you CAN run"
I stuck those headphones back in my ears and just kept running, grateful that I could.
