Beautifully and vulnerably written, Nik! I made the heart-wrenching choice the stop running in 2006 after numerous injuries; I was running myself into the ground, literally. You are right that it takes enormous strength and wisdom to know when to quit. Thank you for writing this. Wishing you all the best!
