Mantra When Life Gets Tough

“There will come a day that you cannot do this. Today is not that day.”

I found this mantra before I started training for my first marathon, and my mom had just been diagnosed with a neurodegenerative muscle disease.

I felt like as she was losing her ability to move her body, I had to take full advantage of that privilege.

It reminds me to do everything I can when I can and never take my health for granted.
