1. the general desire or willingness of someone to do something
On Tuesday I wrote a letter to my dear friend, MOTIVATION. In a nutshell, I let him know that I was missing his presence...big time. I'm not totally nuts. I do realize my motivation wasn't up in a cloud listening to my letter and waiting to respond. But, maybe the running gods were listening. Or maybe (and more likely) I just got lucky. On Wednesday, the head coach of our high school track team emailed us to let us know that Olympic athletes Molly Huddle and Duane Solomon were going to be doing a photo shoot down at our track for Saucony, their team sponsor, and that we were welcome to come down to watch and meet them if we so desired. WHAT?? As you would expect, I bee-lined it down to the track. I had a feeling my buddy MOTIVATION might be down there hanging out as well. Turns out, I was right.

have to say about life as a pro runner.

As it turns out, my buddy MOTIVATION never really left. He just wanted me to remember how much I appreciate him.
...AND MUSIC (always an instant motivator for me as well)
