The whole is greater than the combined parts.
While it’s true that we have within each of us an inexorable will to carry on in the face of adversity, a richer world opens when you realize you don’t have to alone.
Sport teaches us about synergy when sharing in our training, recovery, and racing makes all of us stronger, faster, wiser, more gracious than we would be on our own. We work together to achieve bigger gains than we would have as individuals.
What is learned in sport becomes a universal salve if we remember we have it. It is easier to carry the load with others. In sport. In life. 💙 remembering this and feeling endlessly grateful today.
