Motivation through Perspiration.
My Grandfather used to say that perseverance conquered all. “Stick to it” he said, “You’ll get there in the end”. After a lifetime of running, I’m glad to say he’s right. But…some days even I need a little motivation to continue the perspiration:
When you told your friends and family that you wanted to do something and they told you were crazy…that’s inspiring! Then you do the training…that’s the perspiration!
Another way to say this, ‘Life is not a dress rehearsal’. Since we can’t travel back in time yet, today is the only chance we have to ‘get it done’. No regrets if you get up off the couch and get out for run.
I especially like the last line of this motivational quote: ‘Chocolate cake into muscle’. We know of at least one Reggae Marathoner who runs to eat…cupcakes!
Until next time…
