What is this goal, you may ask? Well, I have decided to RUN A HALF MARATHON on or close to my 40th B-day!!! (That gives me 21 months to train!) THIS IS HUGE FOR ME!
With goals I have found that it is easy to get discouraged, well, it could have discouraged me when I went running for the first time and just about DIED after one lap around the track. Keep in mind this was NOT the first time to the track, however; it was the first time I got the nerve up to RUN. I was breathing really hard, and I am sure I sounded like a herd of elephants coming up on other running along side of me. But I made it around one time, (go ahead laugh, cause it is pathetic!) and had to stop running. I started laughing (not outloud, seriously, I would be considered a FREAK if that were the case) in my head. I thought ... "what are you thinking? a 1/2 marathon? That's like 13.1 MILES and you are dying after one lap!"
Discouragement set in just a little bit. But then I found this quote, and I printed it out and have it hanging with some others in my office & in the bathroom.
WISH ME LUCK!
