A New Shirt and Mantra: Stronger Every Day
Posted on April 06, 2015
I had one of my best runs in a long time this past weekend. With the weather a bit warmer in Western New York, I was finally able to get outside in shorts and a T-shirt and enjoy some miles. It was as rewarding mentally as it was physically.
The winter was long – February and March, especially – and the winter months always impact me in negative ways. Across March, I’d starting letting excuses creep into my vocabulary. I’d been busy as could be at work, I’d picked up some heavier schedules at school, I’d injured my back – my workouts were slipping a bit, my focus on Chase Infinite had been slipping, my diet had gotten off track, I wasn’t getting after it every day as I usually do.
However, on that run, I realized that none of it mattered. That amidst all the busy schedules and sore backs was a simple truth: every day is an opportunity to get stronger. To be truthful, that was a core message Chase Infinite promoted right from the start – No matter what’s going on in your life – you have the ability to wake up and get stronger today. You have the ability to inspire others, to rise above your excuses and to be the best version of yourself.
My weekend reminded me of all that and it has led to some awesome days. I feel back on track and wanted to share the positive energy with all of you. My weekend run also led to a new shirt – which is never a bad thing either.
Here’s to all of you – remember, today is an opportunity to get stronger. And moving forward, let Stronger Every Day be a mantra. Stronger than our excuses, stronger than our obstacles, stronger than our fears and stronger than our weaknesses.
Stay Strong and Awesome!
