In some of the most well agreed upon
painful parts of the body.
Mind over matter used to be a very cliche saying. But after those seven days, I completely agree with that statement. The number one thing that got me through those seven days was the audiobook by the navy seal and ultra-marathon runner David Goggins, “Can’t Hurt Me”. It took me the first three days to finish the audiobook, but once finished, I knew without a doubt that I was going to get through the rest of the week, and any other adversity in life. This book taught me how to go deep into the recesses of my mind, open up to my own vulnerabilities, and face them head-on. It solidified the idea that we are capable of so much more than we think.
