I believe being grateful and thankful is a super power for runners. Thats why I made the Thank You Run and Another Thank You Run and the Grateful 8K Run and the Grateful 5K Run and 30 Minute Thank Yous.

The race isnt going to be perfect. I need to let you know that. You might go out too slow. You may go out too fast. You may fall asleep in the middle or lose focus towards the end. You may come up short or have too much left in the tank at the finish. You may cramp up because you drank too little...
Being your best is not about the past. Being your best is not about the future. Being your best is about today the here and the now because you can only be in the present. So dont compare yourself to the past or compete with yourself in the future. Own this moment. And try your best now. Because ...

I had the honor to hang out with a group of really special people last week in Los Angeles. People that create starting lines. People that create excuses for others to move themselves forward. People that invite their neighbors to be a part of their community. People that saw a need for something...
If you can go for a rungo for a run. Doesnt matter how fast, how far or how long. Just go for a run. Dont run to beat yourself up. Dont run to punish yourself. Dont run to lose something. Dont run away from where you are. Run to lift yourself up. Run to celebrate yourself. Run to gain something. ...
