Ok, so world-famous author, Nicholas Sparks, was an 800 meter runner at University of Notre Dame. For those of you who know, his 1:49.00 split is a very respectable time.
Then he developed plantar fasciitis, a painful and chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia tendon that runs from our heel to our toes.
This ended his running ambitions. Good thing he knew how to write. Well, not at first. But look at him today.
And that’s today’s lesson at Lane 8.
We are never very good at something when we first try. Whether it’s running or writing, both take years and tons of practice to gradually build confidence and results. Same for everything in life too.
But you already knew that, didn’t you? Then what are you complaining about? Keep going. Shut up. And never quit.
