Thank you all for listening to my running rant yesterday, your comments are amazing and many of YOU have inspired me to keep at it.
Number 9 on Outside Magazine’s 2010 Life List: Overachieve got me going.
Overchieving may sound arrogant to some, but to former Navy Seal 36-year-old Eric Grietens, it’s all in a day’s work. This guy is the definition of “bad ass.” His resume includes: “earning a Rhodes scholarship and a Ph.D., running 12 marathons and three ultramarathons.” Ridic.
And he’s giving away his secret to success:
1 – Vigorous exercise: When I have a great workout, I rarely have a bad day.
2 – Good fuel: When I eat clean, quality food during the day, my energy never sags.
3 – Good partners: Working with a team of positive people keeps your spirits up.
4 – Balance: I pray every day, and I also laugh, a lot.
5 – A goal: A worthy challenge will take care of your motivation for you.

LOVE it. If that doesn’t make you want to go attack a good workout I don’t know what will. Oh wait, yes I do…more motivation!
Our VERY own rock star Meghan is heading off to the Ironman 70.3 WORLD Championship in Clearwater, FL this weekend. I cannot wish her enough luck. She is a true competitor with a beautiful spirit. I have never met an athlete quite like this one. It gets better, she’s running the race with her sister. Can we say good gene pool? I’m not exaggerating here kids, she’s in print. Check out Iroman’s out feature on the super sisters: Ironmanlife: Clearwater Bound Sisters.
What’s getting you going this week?!
