What Endurance Athletics Has Taught Me

At 23 years old, I completed the Boston Marathon. Now, 12 years later, I started a business called Mental Fitness which combines both my passion for mental health and physical fitness into one unifying idea.

 

And yet, without my experiences in endurance athletics at younger age, none of this would have been possible today.

 

Endurance athletics have taught me discipline, consistency, and courage. They taught me how to believe in myself and how to stick with long term goals.

 

In short, through the physical trials of running, I’ve gained character as a person.

 

In the end, physical accomplishments are cool, but the Mental Fitness that is gained through them is the true lasting value.
