So THIS Is Fitness | Health, Fitness, Running & Weight Loss

Health, fitness, running, weight loss... it doesn't have to be hard! Take it from a guy who's been there and "gets it" - your host, Darrell McTague. Having lost 130 lbs and finished ULTRAmarathons, he's learned it all the hard way so you don't have to.

We're luckier than we realize.

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...

I've been thinking a lot lately...

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.

We aren't giving it our best.

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?

What's in this episode:

  • I make some assumptions about you
  • we chat about the gifts we've been given
    • and why not to waste them!
