“If you want to go the distance, you’ve got to risk the darkness”Unknown
I’m not a marathon runner but I do recognise the challenges of the sport are both intensely mental and physical. This quote from a marathon runner (I think Jonathan Beverly, but cant be sure) demonstrates the relevance and need for mental toughness to succeed and achieve.
There are so many times that you have to move beyond your comfort zone, and mentally go to places you have never been before.
How often do you have to stand your ground, alone in the face of resistance and opposition and keep going for what you believe in.
