What is my potential? What am I capable of? How can I answer these questions for myself in the simplest way?
These were the questions Scott was asking himself, coming back from injury. Follow his journey back.
Well, I have a plan! Run, run, run and when I cannot run anymore just keep running. Easy to say. Not so easy to do, and therein lies the challenge.
Expressions like “its not the destination its the journey” and “I wouldn’t change a thing because it makes me who I am today”, while clichés, I believe there is truth in them. I believe the journey through hardship, pain, commitment, determination, self-motivation, goals, and finally achievement answer these questions of who I am and what I am made of. This excites me and the fear of failure drives me. So why ultrarunning? Well, you get fit, live a healthy routine, surround yourself with amazing like-minded people and inevitably feel better in mind, body, and spirit.
But what I really want to know is: can I do it?
