‘How could I not go out and do my scheduled run this morning?’ Andrew did it. Ana, Amy, Chelsea, Steve.. they all did their runs.
‘How could I quit now?’ The girl that passed me isn’t quitting, she’s pulling away – which is fine – but damned if she didn’t stop. I can’t stop either.
Sure! They didn’t leave out the part where it sucked, but they did it. Somehow, they found a way to lean into it and get the workout done. They put it in the rear-view mirror. Maybe they don’t even know how – sometimes I don’t know how I got something done. It’s that hard, sometimes. Harder, sometimes, and easier..
This is my community. It’s healthy here and motivating. It’s inspiring and I feel accountable to my friends.
They get inspired and do something.
There are others in their lives, on social media and even in the neighborhoods – perfect strangers who see them doing it and they get inspired and they do something.
And when someone that is doing something sees someone else start to do something – well, they get inspired all over again.
We may not always be inspired, but if we keep inspiring others by doing something – I promise you, it will come back to you in time.
