Someone once told me that I was the most mentally tough person he knew. At that moment, it gave me pause. Never before had I considered myself mentally tough.
To me I just don't let the situation dictate my ability to overcome it.
Take today for example, it would be far too easy to hop on my tread mill and do a few miles so I could call it a day.
But if I did, then I wouldn't be as prepared come race. I often find the most successful people in this world are the people who handle adversity well.
And who knows, it might be raining on race day.
Time to go get soaked.
