We all know that training can be hard and there are times when we may think, I just want to rest! But it’s important to remember why we set goals for ourselves- to challenge our body and our minds. While the Olympics are so inspirational and make me feel like I can get out there and run a marathon in 2:23:07 (which I most DEFINITELY cannot), I also know I will never be at that level. But i can find comfort in knowing I am challenging myself and I can get to my own level of achievement, whatever that may be. I liked this saying in the pin below because while we may not turn out to be Olympians, we are still achieving more than those who never start. Happy running this week!
“Dead last finish is greater than did not finish, which trumps did not start.”
I love that quote! what great motivation and so true. I think being afraid to start and never doing it is where you truly hold yourself back.
Exactly! Nothing is stronger than having the courage to start!
