I could have come up with a million excuses of why NOT to race. I had to force myself to want to do what I had already committed to do. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I KNEW it was going to be an opportunity to practice mental toughness and mental fortitude.
The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we never see them fight. For me, I do best to keep my troubles in proper perspective without losing sight of what I need to accomplish.
Today was an ABSOLUTE mental toughness Day!!! My brain is always going. They say it’s estimated we say 300-1,000 words to ourself per minute. Those words NEED to be positive.
Today, the ChainBuster Gobbler race start was 27° F. The coldest race start I’ve ever seen! Winds at 25-30 mph. I was having the worst menstrual craps, had a horrid nights sleep, and was experiencing a crazy battlefield of the mind for SUREEE!!
