My dad shared this video with me the other night, which was remarkable both because I was unaware that he knew what YouTube was and because he’s typically unaffected by run of the mill motivational things. However, he found the message in this video so powerful, he wanted the rest of us to see it.
Nick’s got it completely right; if you fall down, you have to get back up. And sometimes that takes trying again and again. As I said to someone last night who is attempting VCM for the first time in May, there will be dark moments both in training and in the marathon where your mind and your body will do anything to try to get you to stop. Take it one step at a time and plug on. You’ll get there.
