Why am I here?

Today was a rough one. Tired, unmotivated and…did I mention tired?

I questioned myself as I warmed up, cursed myself when I saw the workout and hated myself when I was in the thick of it.

Why am I here? The nasty voice kept asking me, why? Why? WHY?

And the whole time, I slogged through it, with no good reason why, just the will to put one foot in front of the other.

Then I rolled in the door finishing the last run.

With a big smile of accomplishment, happy I managed to finish, stoked I found the strength and proud that I pursued my goals even in the face of utter failure I thought – “Oh yeah, thats why.”

I won today. Not because I had a great time (it wasn’t), or because I crushed it (I didn’t), but because I showed up.

And today, that gets to go in the +1 column.
