Every day I would overcome the obstacle of myself – my motivation, my physical ailments – and win. Every day I ran I would win. Even if it was a bad run, it was a bad run out of the way – which was a win.
After a while this gives you such confidence – a new and positive outlook. You train yourself that you will overcome any obstacle if you put the effort in. Small win after small win, day after day. If you put the effort in, you win. No matter what happens during the day or what you have to face – if you run you win.
