INTERNAL MOTIVATION

"Are you going to run today?" I asked my daughter Sophie, who was the captain of New Canaan Cross Country & Indoor Track.


"Why bother," she said, "it looks like our spring track season most likely will be canceled. I’m just not motivated."


I found myself thinking the same thing when I went for a bike earlier. It took about 30 minutes of me battling myself mentally with negative thoughts. Why still train hard if the Ironman I’m supposed to do is canceled and I have no idea what is going to happen in the coming weeks or months?


Finally...I was able to quiet my mind and those endorphins that we all crave kicked in!


I told Sophie, "I know it’s hard to stay motivated in times like these but you have to run for yourself not because of the circumstances around you."


As I was driving to pick some things up, I saw her running... "That’s my girl!" I shouted to her.


She also had a good run and it changed her mood.


What’s my point? We all have to find our inner motivation in times like these and keep doing what we do.


WHAT‘S YOUR INNER MOTIVATION?!
