Breaking the run a lot and eat everything in sight mentality with Mike Trees

After a long run, it’s hard to resist the urge to eat everything in sight, much like how it’s hard to resist the pull of a toxic romantic relationship.

And just as a post-run snack can provide a much-needed energy boost, a toxic partner can also temporarily provide a rush of excitement and validation.
