Not pretty, no flashy, but done. Finish the task, the run, the job, the day. Get to done, and keep it rolling.
Felt this when running some trails in Maryland. Breathing heavy, shoes wet from two creek crossings, legs caked with mud, barely managing a 13 minute mile pace – but it’s done.
When I was riding mountain bikes back in my high school days with friends, I loved hills, but all my pals would stop when they got to the top. I always kept it rolling, no matter how slow. Just keep moving forward, because the important work was… done.
And when it’s done, you get to keep going.
