If you ask any athlete where they learned the most about life, oftentimes you will hear that it didn’t come from the moments when all was going peachy. Hardships make you stronger, they make you wiser and they make you physically and mentally tougher. They allow you to realize your priorities in life, they ground you, and they test your perseverence. Every cloud has a silver lining and many pro athletes in the sport have achieved some amazing things through misfortunes. We are in a sport where losses make our runners return more resilient and achieve even greater success than they first set out to. It all just depends how much you want it!
