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 talking about the missing link, people!

We talk a lot about how hard it is to start a fitness routine, and it's always countered with how great it is to BE on the other side. What we DON'T talk about... is that feeling when you turn the tide of battle. The feeling... when you start winning... and you know it.

It's arguably better than winning itself.

Think about it - everybody whines about the difficulties in getting started in sticking with it. We talk about all the road blocks and hurdles and challenges we face that keep us from our ultimate goal. Those people get countered by those who have reached the other side, like me, and can't stop going on about how great it is over here. We preach how "worth it" it is and how great it feels. I, however, want to draw attention to something I feel is more important.

It happens on the journey.

Often you'll hear people talking about how the journey is more important than the destination - I have to say, I wholeheartedly agree. A finish line is simply the starting line of the next journey. There's a really cool moment that happens while you're on your journey. For some people it takes quite a while to reach, and for others it takes hardly any time at all. It's that moment where you feel a shift. One day you wake up, or you do a thing - maybe you've just finished a workout, and all of a sudden you have a realization. You realize... you're starting to win. It's starting to happen. It's not as hard anymore. For me, this time around- I realized getting myself out of bed and off to the gym wasn't as much of a challenge anymore. I realized it was beginning to be a regular part of my routine again. And that feeling when I realized the tide was turning in my favor was amazing.
