Great piece, mental toughness is so powerful. As an ultra runner I believe the real challenge of my training is psychological. I do not only train my muscles, but I train my brain. This resilience and ability to lean in to the uncomfortable has held me in good stead in other areas of my life!

I love your piece and agree with your words! Give me challenge and outdoor activities all day long, that is my relaxation.
