for my first 5k! i guess i can’t back out now. :o) something about committing to it and knowing other people will be around really motivates me. my competitive drive kicks in and gets me moving. 43 more days of training. my goal is to be able to run the whole way without walking.
something i’ve been learning is to not underestimate my strength. whether it is emotionally, spiritually, or physically, i tend to minimize what i can do. instead of seeing my strengths, i tend to focus on my weaknesses. i don’t see my determination when i have focused on the smaller steps along the way instead of the bigger picture.
i still have a long way to go, but that does not negate the progress i have made.
