Grit "an individual’s passion for a particular long-term goal or endstate coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve their respective objective. This perseverance of effort promotes the overcoming of obstacles or challenges that lie within a gritty individual’s path to accomplishment and serves as a driving force in achievement realization."
Good news today after an appointment with the physical therapist -- foot is healing and the IT Band is manageable. With some grit, I am on track (with some amazing friends/guides) to run the marathon! Tomorrow will be a good test as we run 13.
