Motivation Monday: The ‘getting out there’ edition

Why do we bother running on boring treadmills, swimming in crowded pools and lifting in smelly gyms?

So we can master the trails, cross major bodies of water with the strength of our own arms, or ski all day without stopping.

It only took one turn on my first run last week to remind me why I do so many squats, lunges and balance/agility exercises, and to motivate me to do even more to prep for the ski season once I got back home.

Of course, I didn’t stop after just one run (or just one ski day).

What’s motivating you this week?

    Great pictures! Can I come skiing with you one day? I used to go all the time but have really forgotten about it over the past 10 years.

  2. SOOOO HAPPY to see you out skiing!

    And pat yourself on the back for doing the hard, boring work that allows us to have more fun than should be allowed playing outside.
