If you’ve ever felt like life has become a painful marathon, then these 3 things will turn your race into a WIN…

Today was my first NYC Marathon as a spectator — and this is what I learned for all of US…

1. No one knows exactly what you’re going through…but perhaps they do.

We are so much more alike than we can even imagine…at a core level.

If you think that no one knows what you’re going through, then how about telling someone about it?

What are you going through today?

Are you willing to think about it differently, and train your body in a different way so your experience is different.

How about beginning to share your experience?

Perhaps you’re NOT the ONLY one going through it.

Yes, you do have to run for yourself…but you do not have to run all by yourself.

2. Everyone’s having the same, yet very different, experience.

It has to do with your mind, body, and WHY you run…

Why are YOU running?

Your reason why affects how you run?

Remind yourself of why you run.

Remember, you’re not running alone.

What makes the difference is your mind, body, and your WHY.

3. What’s happening in (and through) you is more vital than what’s happening to you.

Are you willing to stop being a spectator and watching everyone else run their race?


Are you willing to jump into the race, and begin to run with others for something bigger than yourself, while running not all by yourself…but running for yourself?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Where do you feel as though you’re running a marathon?

Where do you feel as though no one understands you or knows what YOU’RE going through?

Why don’t you tell someone today?

Perhaps they’re also running the marathon…
