It was late fall season and my intention was to run three miles. The desolate trail made it seem like an eternity … finally, the music lowered to my distance tracker announcement of goal success! As I slowed my pace there was this coneflower standing alone. It was then I realized self-motivation is the stamina needed to accomplish more … the finish line in this moment came at five miles.
