Day 9: Share some words of wisdom that speak to you.
‘Doing epic shit does not require toenails!’ –Carl Lovgren, Ultrarunner
Carl shared these words with me after I lost 7 toenails following my first (and thus far, only) 50-miler.
I’m a master at justification.
– ‘I can’t go running because I don’t have any toenails.’
– ‘It’s raining out, I should probably just Netflix and chill (by myself).’
– ‘The dog is limpy today so I should express sympathy-pain with him as to not have him feel left out.’
I haven’t exercised in approximately 6 weeks due to fire assignments. Or at least that’s how I’ve justified it.
I’ll be done with fire next weekend and, taking Carl’s words to heart, I will get back to running. No more excuses. #Seattle2017
