Yesterday as I was scrolling through my FaceBook feed when I came across a trailer from the UK broadcasters of the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games and I was reminded that we never have any excuse not to try to be the best versions of ourselves. If you believe you can, you will.
I wish that the Paralympic Games got as much attention as the Olympics do. These amazing athletes have overcome so much. They’ve gone out and proved people wrong who told them they would never succeed. They fought back, they’ve struggled, but they believed in themselves.
All it takes is a seed, a spark, deep in your core where the little voice lives that says “why can’t I?” So the next time you doubt yourself – whether it be in your training or in your regular life just remember that YOU are in control of your own destiny. Believe in yourself and others will follow suit.
Now get out there and train hard, until next time, Happy Running!
