101. What to Do When Life Throws You Curveballs

December 03, 2021

Sometimes things just don’t go your way.

You might have to deal with a running-related injury, loss of job, divorce, another COVID lockdown, or some other unexpected setback in your life.

What you do in these situations and how you respond to them can have a profound impact on your life – good or bad.

Recently, I’ve been thrown a big curveball. I’ll talk more about that in the episode.

But instead of sitting around feeling sorry for myself, I’ve decided to do everything I can to get through this tough period feeling good about myself and being as positive as possible.

This episode of the podcast is all about what to do when life throws you curveballs. Because you always have a choice in how you respond to every event in your life, even when it feels like you don’t.

Building Mental Toughness

December is Mental Toughness month over in the Running Lean Coaching Group!

All throughout December, you’re going to learn how to build mental toughness so you can tough it out when the going gets tough (and it always gets tough!)

Whether you want to lose weight, run a marathon or an ultramarathon, or just develop the habits to stick with your food or exercise plan – it all requires MENTAL TOUGHNESS.

There will be times when you won’t feel like working out – or sticking to your diet – or you’ll just want to quit because it’s hard – when you have mental toughness, you can get through all of it.

If you’re ready to build the mental toughness required to get through all the tough stuff – then you have to join the Running Lean Coaching Group!
