Wednesday, December 9 – Athletics Wellness Daily Post – Keep Showing Up
The phrase, “Keep showing up” was coined by American marathon runner and 2018 Boston Marathon Champion Des Linden. Des used the phrase as a mantra while training for her historic win — she was the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in over 33 years.
“Some days it just flows and I feel like I’m born to do this, other days it feels like I’m trudging through hell. Every day I make the choice to show up and see what I’ve got, and to try and be better. My advice: Keep showing up.” – Des Linden
The remarkable secret behind Des’ marathon win? She nearly dropped out of the race.
