How doing something you love can make you miserable
We’ve gotten a lot of new listeners in the past few months, so this week, we're playing a story that some of you may have missed. It ran back in 2015, when the show was still very new, and it won a big national award last year.
The story is about a 70-mile mountain bike race called the Laramie Enduro, which I signed up for in 2015.
I've always liked big athletic challenges, like triathlons and half marathons. But this race was different. This time, pushing my limits turned out to be a big mistake.
On this episode, I share the story of that mistake. It's a story about trying to prove yourself, about testing what you're capable of. And ultimately, it's about learning when to say no.
