Ep. 26: Listener Episode and Lessons from the Canberra Marathon

In this episode, I feature your answers to the question, "why do you do what you do?". I share these answers before leading into my lessons from a race segment, featuring the Canberra Marathon. It's been an incredible journey so far and I am so grateful to have all my listeners, friends, family, etc to help me along the way. No matter what happens, I feel like I have already won. Some takeaway bullet points: 1. The path isn't always going to be the path you think it will be... But learn from it what you can and how you can. 2. Appreciate the things in your life that are there for you despite anything else. 3. Always be sure to look at the positives, even if you feel like they may not be worth it-- THEY ARE! 4. Look at the bigger picture and see how far you've come overall... 4 hours isn't going to tell you everything you need to know. 5. There's many steps to take in the journey... Not every step will be great... But take the steps anyway.
