That self-discipline muscle

My coach, Bob Sevene, always talks about how running reflects life, and he actually prefers the term “teacher” to “coach” because he says he is not just coaching the body, he’s using athletics to develop the whole person. Pushing your mind and your body to the limits in training and in races is character development at its finest. There are occasional days where I have trouble getting out the door, but I have learned that to get what I want, I have to be willing to put in the time. I have also found that it’s hard to get into a good routine, but once I am there I enjoy it more and more. Discipline seems to breed discipline. I will keep flexing my self-discipline muscle.
