And as proud as I am of myself, this morning took a lot of self convincing.
I had a full blown internal dialogue that was a mix between trying to motivate me and rationalizing why I shouldn’t have to go.
“You don’t have to go now. You can go tonight.”
“There is no way I’m going tonight. I want to watch Orange is the New Black like it’s a marathon.”
“Then skip a day… it won’t hurt. You deserve a break.”
The end of this conversation resulted in me putting on my sneakers (that usually ends all conversations with myself. The sneakers are on. Shut up.) I also employed one of my favorite methods of motivation- convincing someone to be your running partner. And then I did it, I walked out the door and ran an 8 minute mile, my best time. And that’s why it’s all worth it. Mind over everything.
And check out that view. That’s also why it’s worth it.
