I was doing my bi-weekly track workout with a buddy this morning and we were chatting about goals. A couple of years ago I set the intention to let running teach me about goals. MAN what a fricken teacher. Especially when you test the limits in the right way. But you know what one of the biggest lessons has been? Missing an important goal or deadline can be devastating if you don’t know how to learn from it. Not only that, but it can leave an imprint that prevents you from committing to your future goals.
