Fit is ONLY about YOU! …… Run YOUR Race!
Most of us can recall childhood moments when we realized Mary or Rafael, Anju or Jamal could run farther, throw harder, skate faster, jump higher, or swing a golf club or tennis racquet better than us. Somehow they had the natural mechanics, body type, endurance and strength to make it look easy. Our personal insecurities about “the inherent weaknesses of our DNA” weren’t helped when we turned on a television and watched elite athletes show how it was REALLY meant to be done.
If we are not careful, comparing ourselves to others can defeat us before we start – perhaps even make us think being fit (or even active) doesn’t apply to us.
Be World Class in your life
In our society, all too often we associate fitness as exclusive to athletes and athletic performance. And while fitness clearly belongs with athletics, the need for fitness is universal since (by definition) the ability to perform daily activities is rather broad.
In short we need to keep HOW WE THINK ABOUT FITNESS as ONLY RUNNING OUR RACE and not overthink our limitations – especially in relation to elite athletes.
Indeed for 99.9999% of people there will always be someone better. Cases in point: there’s only one quarterback who’s won 6 Super Bowls, only one defenseman who won the NHL scoring title (twice) and only one Serena Williams, Simone Biles, Michael Phelps or Bruce Lee. In the words of Muhammed Ali: there can only be one greatest of all-time.
The best news is: there’s also only one YOU!
And GETTING FIT is ONLY about you becoming the greatest you can be in your world – whether that race proves iconic (like Kathrine Switzer who shattered ceilings, if not records, in 1967 as the first woman to run the Boston Marathon and inspired future generations to follow her) or quietly caring and providing for your family each day.
