The cliche statement is true. Never ever give up because you’re capable of more than you know.

Do NOT ever sell yourself short! Never give up! Feeling defeated? I’ve been there and I’ve learned to rise above it. If I can do this then you can do this too! I just completed a very challenging race called: Fat Dog 120. This is a 120 mile mountain ultra marathon (it was actually 204KM) in Manning Park, BC. The elevation was 8,400M…. Almost the same elevation of Mount Everest. I never used to be a strong hill/ mountain climber. I used to feel so defeated on the uphills. I used have to stop to catch my breath several times as I climbed up hills. I would get passed by many racers on the uphill. I felt so defeated at times, however; I learned to change my mindset, to stay positive and to never gave up. I kept showing up to ultra marathon races. Sometimes I’d barely make the cut off and one time I finished a race over the time limit. Despite all of this, I changed my attitude and I kept training hard. I made adjustments to my diet and training plan. I’m proud to say that I just completed a very long and challenging ultra marathon with very high elevation (so many relentless climbs). This time it was so doable. I didn’t find everyone was passing me. I didn’t have to stop to catch my breath and I didn’t chase any cut offs. I powered up those mountain climbs and I felt darn good about it. Whatever your goal is, you can do it too. If I can achieve my goals, so can you. I urge you to keep going …. Even when the progress feels painfully slow… Even when you feel defeated…. We get what we work for. Our thoughts become our reality. As they say “ if you believe you can’t then your probably right”. Why not give yourself a chance and see what happens? What do you have to loose? Struggling? I’m here to help. Let’s talk. Send me a private message, email or leave a comment below.
