Mental strength is only seen during times of crisis or through extreme testing. I have had let’s call it a rough patch. I can’t change surrounding events so I starting training for a half Ironman. And my body has adapted to the intense training beautifully. Hair grows back. Eyebrows will grow back. How you respond though is everything. I can promise you from what I have been put through most people would have been curled up in a ball. I don’t drink, I focus on building even healthier habits and focus on new challenges. Turn lemons into lemonade. While it has been a rough hair year, it has turned into an amazing swim, bike, run year and used the shit handed to me to get into the best shape of my life. Shed nearly 30lbs through proper diet and exercise with limitless energy today! Best response to bullshit.
