At my conference last week, 2014 Boston Marathon Winner Meb Keflezghi said something I’ll always remember:
“Before race day, it’s 90 percent physical and 10% mental; on race day, it’s 90% mental and 10% physical.”
If grit is a coin, Meb’s 90/10 rule covers both sides. One side of the coin is the steady, disciplined grit that is not flashy but provides a strong foundation. The other side is pure courage; grit at its most raw, as we push ourselves beyond our preparation to new heights.
