The secret is to not give up. Relentless pursue your goals and dreams. You see me share all these smiling thumbs up photos; the truth is, 95+% of the time during this #100Run I am miserable. Everything hurts. When I'm not running I'm recovering from a run. When I'm running, most of the time my head is down and I'm using any mental trick I can to keep my mind off the discomfort. The beach might look glamorous, but the effort needed to reach my goal is not. I cherish the brief moments of joy, I capture many of those moments with a photo or video, but the rest....it basically sucks, it's miserable, but putting one foot in front of the other, over and over, is the only way towards my goals. It's the same for you with your goals. Keep on going.
