Of course, Mondays are always difficult, and so this week’s motivation comes from Ben True, a Saucony sponsored athlete. What gets me about this video is True’s story about his mixed relationship with running. He ran because he was good at it, and was pushed towards it- but it wasn’t his true passion.
But then, when he completely walked away from competitive running- that was when he found his true passion for the sport.
I think this speaks volumes about taking the pressure off yourself- you can often perform best, or with the most joy and enthusiasm, when you abandon expectations of yourself and your sport.
As always, share with me your Monday Motivation- what keeps you going?
Lots of love,
