This is 40… can’t believe it. I’ve hit my 40’s and I feel like I’m healthier than ever before. Life has been one amazing journey. I’ve had my share of amazing adventures as a kid and as an adult… from 30 days touring all of Europe by train to traveling 300 miles round trip on a 27-foot powerboat with my wife over the course of a week encountering crazy weather, and challenges that made us a better couple.
I ran my first marathon 3 years ago which ended up being the toughest marathon in the northeast… and not to mention there was a nor’ easter where the temps dropped to about 40 degrees and it rained 3 inches while I was on the trail. So… I picked a hard race and nature mixed with horrible weather made it even harder.
Since the marathon, I completed a 50K on the same course and completed a 50-mile ruck (check out the www.GoRuck.com star course- and it RAINED for more than 12 hours during that event).
Maybe I need to do an event in a place that isn’t known for rain!
As my RACE TO 100 continues, my week wasn’t my best distance week… I did about a 5 mile day roundtrip to the gym and skipped training Friday after my birthday… let’s say I didn’t get the best night sleep after a cocktail or 2.
I did finish off the week with a 17-mile run which felt awesome.
I know you are your own best inspiration. As one of my digital mentors (David Goggins) says “STAY STRONG”.
Have an amazing day evening and night! Appreciate YOU!!!
