Somebody posted this in my running club a few weeks ago and it struck a chord with me. Tomorrow I’m off to run the Master of All Terrain Half Marathon in Mt. Dora, FL. An off-road course going through fields and woods and sand and heaven knows what else. In June. In Florida. It’s a pretty intimidating course and I’m…. well, intimidated. But I just watched this again and felt a little better. A little stronger. It’s motivating and empowering and reminds me that when my alarm clock goes off at an ungodly hour of the morning, it’s just an opportunity to go out there and better myself.
“For what is each day but a series of conflicts between the right way and the easy way?” Let this be my creed.
