…or mind over hills 😉 Your mind and thoughts are so powerful they can actually affect your performance.  The difference between thinking ‘this is hard, I can’t do it’ and ‘I am strong, I can do this’ is astounding.  I notice it with myself regularly during runs and workouts.  The ones I have most enjoyment and feel the most fluid in… Read more »
