2. Don’t make running your life…
Really? That’s like telling an artist not to make art their life, or a musician to not make music their life.. I am a runner. When my trainer told me I couldn’t run anymore, I cried. He didn’t see me cry, but I did. I had to tell my track coach and teammates. There’s no worse feeling that not being something you once were.. You’re life is ripped from you and you feel like you’re a waste of time and energy.

I think that’s what it’s telling you not to do. Because if you make it your life and that happens, you feel like there’s nothing left. If you make it a part of your life then it’s just that - a part - and you have other things to focus on.
