Getting up and out the door is the hardest part of our long run.
That’s what they say…but it’s not really true…
The hardest part of our workout…is our workout!
We run for what seems like forever, we sweat buckets in the heat, our lungs ache and our legs scream….but when we are done we feel empowered, we feel revived, we feel amazing!
As you battle with yourself to get out of your comfy bed, to leave your family at home, to get sweaty and tired…think about how you feel once it’s done, once you’ve depleted your body of all it’s energy. There’s no better feeling than clearing your mind of all the stress from your week.
Yes our body will be taxed to its limit…but the power that this workout will have on your mind is worth every step. Once it’s done, you’re ready to tackle anything. Well…after a nap. 😉
Keep the dream alive…get up and get moving!
