Push yourself keep yourself going again you know. I told my kids. I was going to do it so i better do it. that was a big motivator for me and also really involving my daughter's entire class in it and it was so cute them. You know all cheering and really makes you just like when you're running a race rate and your year like at your moment where you feel like i just can't do it. I'm just gonna stop and then people start cheering and all sudden you get it right back right and then you're able to move forward so it's that kind of thing where you know i could think to myself like i can hear them supporting me. And i think that is such a powerful thing and also. I'm part of this team. So if i stop what happens to the rest of the team and i want to make sure that i'm doing the best job i can to move forward for everybody else around me They're definitely moments. The hardest thing i think was you know at night when it was cold and you had to get up and go to the bathroom. You'd have to like psych yourself up. Just get just to get out of the tent.
