Motivation is all around us. But the only way to see it and experience it is to first want to. Motivation is about people inspiring other people.
For the better part of my entire life, I thought I was as close to invincible as was humanly possible. With all the running I have done, I thought no physical challenge was insurmountable. It took 59 years, but, a few years ago that all changed in a heartbeat.
Every now and then it feels good to be recognized when people know who you are, what you do and what you have done. Then there are times when it might be better not to be recognized at all or, as I like to call it, “being incognito.”
First, I must admit, I don’t know much about these M.O.B. events (aka, mud, obstacle and beer) and I have never even competed in one, but I am certainly totally fascinated by and envious of their incredible growth and the amount of interest they have generated. My mother use to tell me when I was a little boy, that I use to eat sand…don’t ask why…so, I’m not sure why crawling around in mud doesn’t appeal to me these days.
