Most of us go through life taking for granted what we've got. I'm not saying we're spoiled... I'm saying we don't know any better. Just like a small child doesn't understand the value of a dollar... maybe we don't realize the value of the gifts we've been given...
There's a quote that's been on my mind from Steve Prefontaine - a prolific track and field athlete from the 70's.
"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."
I'm sure he was speaking in terms of professional or collegiate athletes giving their best performance in a competition setting. I think, however, what he said can apply just as easily to the rest of us. Yes, this is applicable to us "normies" in our daily life. More specifically, I think it's applicable to us in our fitness endeavors.
More often than not, anyway, I find this to be true. I know if I look myself in the mirror and ask if I'm giving my best... it's a hard "no". But what does "giving your best" even mean? And what "gifts" are we wasting?
