Mental depression and doubts were as draining as the
actual physical exertion required to complete my daily mileage in the 3100. The secret to
keeping the mental toughness needed in the race was to conquer or overcome the
negative qualities existing in the mind and to remain happy. I am frequently
asked how I manage to get up in the 3100 mile race, day after day, and perform
a task I don’t necessarily want to do. If I were to wake and put on my running
gear with the despondent thought, “Oh no,
here I go again,” it meant I had already started the day on the wrong foot.
I had to stay positive and focused and look forward to every day.
I am ultra runner from Australia. I am into motivational exploits involving any sort of physical feat that is inspirational and positive. On the side I work as a motivational speaker, business speaker and trainer, keynote speaker and youth speaker.
