I recently suffered a metatarsal injury and even though I was only out for a short time, I experienced a lot of frustration because of the obstruction to my progress and more so anger at the limitations of my own body. Having this injury caused me to reflect on why I am willing to push my body to its limits or maybe even past its limits, why I am willing to hurt and why I am willing to sacrifice my comfort. Is it all worth it?

So dear friends, when you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That is where your power is.
