Dear Runners, Stop Saying It's "Just" A (Insert Distance Here)
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THS:
DOES THAT "JUST" LOOK FAMILIAR?
Of course, it does!
You use it.
I use it.
We all use it, and it has to stop.
I'm tired of seeing ladies in the #BadassLadyGang qualify their accomplishments. I'm sick of hearing people trivialize a distance or say something like, "My goal is just to finish. I'm not very fast."
I don't care how fast or slow you are. I don't care if it's a mile or a marathon, stop saying "just".
Your goal is not just to finish a Mile/5K/10K/Half Marathon/Marathon. Your goal is to run a f*cking Mile/5K/10K/Half Marathon/Marathon.
It's not up for debate. If you disagree, go write about it on your own platforms but in the world of Run, Selfie, Repeat, the word just will no longer be tolerated.
Kick ass. Take names.
