Fitness Meme of the Week: Fall Seven Times…

From a lovely Pinterest page collecting inspirational quotes:

The real key to success? Learning a little something about how not to fall, every time we fall...because we keep learning the more we keep persevering.
The real key to success? Learning a little something about how not to fall, every time we fall…because we keep learning the more we keep persevering.

Not just because I had an actual fall almost two weeks ago that has wreaked a bit of havoc with my running training…but because this idea is what can separate those who fulfill their life’s dreams from those who try once, stumble, and decide not to try again. It is amazingly inspiring to be in the presence of people who keep on trying, learning as they go along, and then one day – poof! – they’re in a new place because they wouldn’t quit. And they knew, instinctively, that a “fall” is just a learning experience. It only becomes a failure when we fail to try again, deploying the knowledge we learned from the fall.

(And that means: no more running on slippery sidewalks after wind and rain storms when I’m six weeks out from a marathon. Duh.)

Have a great Friday, a super workout, and an amazing weekend. See you next week.
