On Saturday I completed my 2nd recorded marathon in 9 hours and 33 minutes and the name of the event accurately summed it up…
Suckfest 2. ⚔️
And better yet, it wasn’t a “normal marathon” which is why the time was 2x than my first!
The event consisted of 28 miles (1.8 extra for good measure) and 4,200 reps of resistance training with a team of like-minded people from across the world wanting to get better. 🏋️♀️
Why would I do such a thing?
Well, I used to lack confidence, possess poor leadership skills, and was unsure of myself more than I want to admit. 😞
But when I began to intentionally do hard stuff. This changed this for me, and it continues to do so.
Want more confidence? 🧐
Want more self-esteem? 🧐
Want more life momentum and to be an overall better person? 🧐
- Challenge yourself. ⚔️
- Do hard stuff. ⚔️
- Stack wins. ⚔️
- Push yourself further than you think is possible. ⚔️
It’s not fun going through it. Sometimes downright miserable. This is real talk.
But when you take 1 step, the next is easier. And the cycle repeats until you wake up a new person.
This is what I was reminded of on Saturday.
And want this for you. 👊
In closing, would I recommend Suckfest for you? Probably not unless you are highly conditioned.
But whether it’s a long walk, a fast run, another set, a tough hike out, or anything outside your current reach….
Pushing your specific comfort zone and “embracing the suck” will make you better!
Make it a great day!
