Run from people chasing you. As in one of my favorite Nike commercials starring a former Olympic runner from Wisconsin, a role model of mine growing up, and someone I got to meet with my cross country athletes a few years ago-Suzy Favor Hamilton.

While she has had a rough year, to those who are quick to pass judgement, remember the saying that you can’t really understand someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. Unless you’ve “run” a mile in her shoes, remember she still earned more records in high school and in the NCAA while at UW-Madison than anyone else from Wisconsin to date. Even elite runners are entitled to run from something. What do you run from?

Happy Monday!
