Lack of motivation is real when it’s November in Tacoma, Washington and it’s day 28 of steady rain, fog and dreariness.

A few years ago, I thought a December marathon in Las Vegas would be fun…

…but forgot timing for outdoor long runs would suck in Western Washington in November. 

Training for a long run on a treadmill is how I imagine workouts in jail would be.

For most, lack of motivation comes from a deeper place than poor planning.

If I was really truly psyched about running the marathon I would have embraced the soggy training and chance for bleeding friction rubs from my sports bra. 

Having something that fires you up and gets you excited is the quickest way to reboot your motivation.

The chance to learn a new skill or geek out on something can be a quick reboot. 

During that dreary month when I was supposed to be training for a marathon I geeked out on learning indoor rock climbing…

…in between a few runs on the treadmills. 

Had I not found the rock climbing gym to motivate me, I may not have ran the marathon at all.

To be honest, I bailed and ran the 1/2 marathon vs the full…

…and decided I was done with marathons.
