There is no replacement for hard work. dedication, commitment and determination.
Last night I googled “motivational quotes.” I am training for a half marathon and a long run was scheduled for the morning. What I really wanted from those quotes was not motivation, but an excuse to not run.
You know what I found?
There is no replacement for hard work, dedication, commitment and determination.
At 5:45 I ran.
It was dark.
At 6:55 the sun came up.
I was still running.
Honestly, I was not feeling hard, dedicated, committed or determined, but I finished my run.
Some days are just like that.
There is no replacement.
