“I am two women: one wants to have all the joy, passion and adventure that life can give me. The other wants to be a slave to routine, to family life, to the things that can be planned and achieved. I'm a housewife and a prostitute, both of us living in the same body and doing battle with each other.”
And I'm thinking, is there anything that I have ever read that comes close to summing up my life as a runner more than this? I really don't think so. No wonder I'm so exhausted when I fall into bed at night.
