There are things we need to let go of and things we need to embrace. We are all multi-dimensional beings and running is just part of who we are. Navigating sacrifice is highly personal topic.
In this week’s episode we explore the topic from our own experiences, and challenge, discuss, and digest approaches to training from the lens of sacrifice.

Main Topic: Let it Go
“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.
But sometimes it doesn’t.
Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.
That is the sort of bravery I must have now.”
― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
Navigating training and life is a common topic for us at A to Z Running. This week we talk about sacrifice:
- Sacrifices we don’t like
- Sacrifices we didn’t make
- Sacrifices that paid off
- When to sacrifice FOR training
Sometimes letting go just means opening our hand for our need to control, balancing life’s needs, and holding close the things that matter most.
