Inconvenience Shouldn't Stop Anyone
Inconvenience Shouldn't Stop Anyone

We all know motivation comes and goes like the wind. It’s very challenging to find it every single day.

Yesterday’s Lane 8 blog post featured a photo of Scott Rigsby, the first double-amputee to complete the Ironman Triathlon.

My son and I were at Hanger Prosthetics Tuesday, turning in a script for two new night splints.

Yeah, I have to wear two night splints every night. And custom Orthotics in each shoe. And take Celebrex daily, and use Voltaren gel 4x a day, and ice my left foot twice a day.

Bet Scott wishes that was the least of his motivational challenges.

How often do you struggle with things that ought to be pretty simple?

And when it comes to your health, what and how do you stay motivated?

Lane 8 is a health blog.

The catch is, I’m a runner.

Running is how I stay active. But running is really just the tip of the iceberg.

Running goals, ultimately, are simply a carrot.
