Every endurance athlete has found someone or someway to be inspired to get through tough workouts. On Sunday, my long bike ride was getting tougher at mile 45 then thought of EJ going through 6 months of chemo for stage 4 cancer. Yesterday, Sue, battling breast cancer, was my inspiration to push me to surge on the last hill for the tempo run. I know on race day I will be thinking of EJ and Sue.
Who or What inspires you for those tough days?
