Pain - a privilege

I was listening to one of John Kynaston 's West Highland Way race podcasts last night. The WHW is a race over 95 miles in the West Highlands of Scotland. One of the speakers was talking about carrying on when it gets tough.

She said something like"pain is a privilege for the living. ". Take encouragement from it. It reminds you that you are alive and lucky enough and fit enough to be doing this. She had come back to race after a brain injury and for her sore feet were a joy!

Look for the positives in your struggles.

What's a rain injury? She slipped and fell in the rain during a run?

If you wake up and notice you have no pain, you may have died already!
