RIDE & RUN-derful Wednesday

It's important to take stock in life's everyday blessings. Sometimes I have so much going on that focusing on the small things make me smile, as well as force me to live in the moment and not take things for granted. My goal is to set aside one day a week to discuss a favorite quote or theme that currently resonates with me when it comes to running, BMX or just life in general.

This week's thoughts include:


(For anyone who is in need of a little pep talk, keep reading.)

Champions aren't the ones who always win; they are the ones who lose about a million times, who always get back up and try again and who show up over and over and over, tirelessly. They're the ones who keep at it even when the day or the week or the month or the year isn't going their way. They are the ones who start winning and doing well, then catch the attention of others who think that they came out of nowhere. Keep showing up, keep working hard, and keep getting back up when things aren't going your way. People may not understand why you are relentless in the face of failure, and when you do well they may not understand the hard work you put in, chalking you up to a "natural" or anything external. Anything to avoid accepting that you worked hard for everything you have. I've experienced it, and I'm perfectly okay with whatever someone else wants to think. In the end it doesn't affect me. Keep doing you because no matter how hard that can be, it's a lot easier than trying to please everyone else. Keep rocking your life!
