This lesson was born in the furnace of an extremely difficult 100 mile mountain ultramarathon, The Cruel Jewel 100.
At mile 70 I suffered a tear in my lower hamstring. I continued to push forward, in significant pain, without speaking of the injury to myself or others for the next 25 miles. Moving well and gaining ground until last check point.
With only 5 miles to the finish line, I decided to voice my injury and pain to a race official. Immediately after giving my pain a voice it gained power over my mind and became debilitating. It took me 3 hours to cover that last 5 miles.
Lesson learned. The flesh is weak. Now ask me how I’m feeling deep into any challenge of life and my response is simple, “OUTSTANDING”! We can talk about the pain after the finish line.
