Webster’s Dictionary defines dedication as “a feeling of very strong support for or loyalty to someone or something : the quality or state of being dedicated to a person, group, cause, etc.” Synonyms include allegiance, devotion and commitment. At East Coast Run Project, this is our first team requirement. You must have the dedication to your goals that reaching them requires.
Why? Because training is hard. There will be rainy days and cold days and hot days. You will be tired. Soreness will creep in. You will ask yourself ‘why?’
Know why you want to accomplish something. Exactly what it means to you. Be able to enjoy each step along the way even when it’s challenging is key to reaching your goals.
It’s easy to lose site of your goal and get off track with so many things trying to get in the way. Be 100% dedicated to accomplishing what you’ve set out to. Whether it’s a monthly objective, annual goal or long term destination, that dedication will ensure that you can make it through hard days.
Be 100% dedicated to your training, recovery and fueling every single day with your goal firmly locked into focus.
