"You could carry your burdens lightly or with great effort." - Scott Jurek {the ponytail diaries}

From his pretty fantastic book Eat & Run. Seriously, it will make you want to run crazy ultras and tempt you to go vegan, or at least incorporate more plant-based meals into your life. I remember reading the section of the book with this line on a plane and literally sitting straight up and frantically rummaging through my purse for a pen or something to mark the page (and I almost never mark up books). Almost four years later, it’s really become a mantra of sorts that I try to remember during times of great stress and overwhelm (so, like, all the time, pretty much).
