Daily lives are often about “the grind”—work, kids, chores, obligations, repeat. Focusing on training for this marathon, and thinking about how incredibly long it is, is about freeing your mind and letting your body follow. It’s about pushing through the hill, and the next hill. And it’s about going out on a run while fighting 30-mph winds. It’s about looking outside, knowing the temps are in the 20s, and still lacing up the shoes. It’s setting aside “me” time to get my training in so that I can accomplish my goals for this race.
