MOTIVATION: just keep going.
Final week countdown for MYB mayMADNESS! A lot can happen in a week. Even just one or two days of great working out can change your whole outlook. It can change how you feel, how you think, what you wear, how you walk and how you see yourself. Keep it up. Keep pushing. Keep trying to find your rhythm and get into your zone.
If the past month has been awesome and full of serious workouts for you, can you push yourself even that bit much further this very last week? If you’ve reached your goals can you even surpass them??
If your month has been tough and you’ve been struggling with your workouts, see this next week as a one week challenge. Give it all you’ve got. All that matters is that you JUST KEEP GOING. Until you stop trying, you have not yet failed. You could be one workout away from finding that workout that you totally love and can’t get enough of. Keep pushing. You can do this. By the end of next week, you’ll be happy you started this week.
JUST KEEP GOING!

MIGHTYmarch: day #17
For me it’s MISSION day—the DC half marathon is today. But just yesterday my family lost a loved one. What does one do in these hard times?
Do you shy away and stop pushing yourself towards you goals? Do you sit in defeat? Or do you grasp on tight to them as freakin’ hard as you possibly can and let them drive you? Do you prove that you’re still living by pushing life to the edges?
For me, running feels especially good in such hard hectic times. The heart-pounding, heavy-breathing, pace-pushing mania you’re chasing your body through is exactly how you feel inside. For once your feet are racing as fast as your mind and your heart is beating as loud as you want to cry. But through the wild highs and lows of running a race, my mind clears. I don’t have to hold anything in. I just leave it all on the course. Chances are it’s gonna be equal parts tears and sweat. But today I will run. I will race hard. Hard because I can. Hard for those who can’t. Hard for everything we’ve all been working towards this month. Hard because we don’t give up. Hard because if I can make it through this race, I know I can make it through the tough times that lay ahead.
What you do in your workouts directly relates to what you do in life. Work hard for this challenge and achieve your goals and missions and you’ll find you can work hard anywhere else you choose. You all inspire me! Keep up you amazing work! Today I also run for you.
