Sometimes its tough to keep going isn't it? About 2/3 of the way through Sundays race as you can see I was in pain and I had to make a choice-do I keep going or do I give up. Two things came to mind for me. 1-Why do I want to put myself through this?-Because at the end of the day the accomplishment of finishing is a feeling that we can't get from anything else. 2-I realized that as bad as I was feeling there wasn't anyone else out there that was feeling any better. Someone once said to me- "The only difference between the guy who wins and the guy who loses is the one who is willing to hurt the most. I believe that we are all capable of handling a lot more than our bodies try to tell us. Don't give up in your pursuit to be fit and have fun doing your exercise what ever it may be because in the end it will be the best feeling that helps feed itself.
