Set backs in training can create frustration and heartache. Injuries happen even when things are going famously. How one adjusts when setbacks happen determine how one will survive as a runner and a mentally strong individual.

To get knocked down repeatedly and to get back up again and again and again is what makes those who dare to be great just that. Whether it is business, sport or even one’s general health. Do you have the fight to succeed when adversity strikes?
The medicine may be a tough pill to swallow, but if the reward is simply living life to the fullest isn’t it worth the struggle to get there?
