"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results." - Unknown
I saw this quote yesterday and it really hit home for me. People have asked me why I push myself to insane limits, goals, and running distances. The simple answer, I enjoy doing it. Most people exercise to stay in shape or lose weight. That is exactly where I started myself, but over time I began to enjoy what I was doing and it was no longer something I HAD to do but something I WANTED to do.
Having this mindset makes my commitment to my goals easy. Who wants to join me for a 30 miler on Sunday morning, guaranteed to be a good time!
