That's the only way I know

I'm a little obsessed with the song, "The Only Way I Know" by Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. In particular the chorus gets stuck in my head all the time:  

"That’s the only way I know
Don’t stop 'til everything’s gone
Straight ahead, never turn round
Don’t back up, don’t back down
Full throttle, wide open
You get tired and you don’t show it
Dig a little deeper when you think you can’t dig no more
That’s the only way I know"

That feels a lot like my life - pushing forward, pushing hard, never slowing down. The line "dig a little deeper when you think you can't dig no more" is kind of the story of my life. (Granted I think he could be actually referring to farming, but I choose to ignore that part.) It works with running too - those last few miles, digging in, pushing through. That's how I choose to do pretty much everything.

After the stress of the last week I have bags under my eyes and I'm behind on my training program with a half marathon in just over a week, but I'll be pushing through it. Don't back up. Don't back down.
