Hard Work, Sacrifice, and Reward

« | »

It wasn’t until my late twenties that I learned that by working out I
had given myself a great gift. I learned that nothing good comes without
work and a certain amount of pain. When I finish a set that leaves me
shaking, I know more about myself. When something gets bad, I know it
can’t be as bad as that workout.
