Pushing yourself both physically and mentally to me is what life is all about. Finding out what you are made of. For me, that could mean training for a race, running around with my kids, or reading a great book. It all has it challenges.
I love quotes and inspirational people. One of my all time favorites is Coach John Wooden. I believe he got it right when coaching and training his athletes. A quote his dad said sums it all up for me.
"Don't try to be better than somebody else, but never cease trying to be the best you can be." Joshua Wooden
