Today's run was a long and challenging hill session, yet fantastic.
All because of one simple but powerful thing: good attitude. A good attitude towards ourselves, each other and the workout.
Our words of encouragement echoed through the air, pushing each other forward. The high-fives exchanged between repetitions were more than just gestures; they were bursts of positivity. Even as the perceived effort became more intense and the hill steeper in the last few reps, the camaraderie kept us all charged with determination.
This reminded me of a book I've read multiple times – "Let Your Mind Run" by Deena Kastor. By altering her mindset and adopting a "good attitude" towards training and herself, she transformed her performance. Not only she managed to tap into her full potential but also grew to be a positive and happy person and positive influence to so many others, including me.
Our attitude shapes not only our experience but also our outcomes.
