Feel Alive in 2017…

Why Having Events in the Diary is the Best Motivator

We as human beings are designed to be pushed both mentally and physically. From years of being hunter gatherers, chasing and killing our prey, we still to this day strive on physical challenges. It is why people get hooked on running, the way crossing that finish line makes you feel incredibly alive because you have just overcome the physical battle of the race. It’s why people are completely obsessed with OCR (obstacle course race) because each obstacle throws up a new physical challenge that your mind and body must overcome.  But it isn’t just the event itself that will test you physically, having the event in the diary months in advance will give you a drive and focus to train towards that big occasion. I always say to anyone, don’t think about it – just book it. Do not hesitate in booking any event whether it be a 10k flat run or a 50 mile multi-terrain ultra, as soon as that button is clicked and your place is secured, you will have no choice but to train until you are ready for the start line. You may go through hell to cross that finish line, but when you do – boy is it awesome!
