Finding motivation when the going gets tough

Doing the murph solo on Tuesday was challenging, but thinking about the hardships that those who’ve served our country have faced reframed my experience and gave me extra juice. It went beyond the reasons I normally push myself. I thought it was a meaningful experience of how reframing the “why” can greatly influence the results. I asked Samuari and Lumbergh to share what pushes them through especially challenging moments. Good points about letting others work through us (having community, faith, etc that manifests through us during hard times) and how we can reframing the “this is gonna suck” mentality into “this is gonna be hard and make be better”. We hit up Elka Bee’s for the usual, which they pretty much had waiting for us before we even ordered. #F3Regulars

Rock on, Slash!
