During all three of my 100 mile finishes I wanted to stop. Different things kept me going in each one. Sometimes it was the support of others. Other times it was knowing it would be worth it in the end. Sometimes we don’t see the finish line like I did during my 100 mile runs. That’s life. We can make checkpoints and set small goals though. We can focus on just doing what we can in that moment to move forward. Sometimes that’s the best we’ve got. That is enough. Keep going in some way with an optimistic mindset that things are going to eventually be better. Then, we’ve got to keep grinding it out until it breaks open and the wind catches our sails. Ride that wind and keep the pressure on. Just keep going.
