Yes You Can

I had to chuckle at towards the end of my run this morning.

As I was finishing up the last half-mile of my 6.5, a man hollered and asked me,

“Are you on a track team, or are you just running?”

What I thought: Do I look young enough to be on a track team??  Booyah!!

What I said: “No, I’m just running.”  And in my head I sounded like Forrest Gump.

I really hope it didn’t come out of my mouth that way, but I can hear it in my head and it makes me giggle.  “I just felt like run-ning.”  Oh gosh, now I’m going to have to watch it.Smile

That is totally going to be stuck in my head all day long.

I really pushed myself this morning.  I kept repeating to myself “push through the mental blocks, you can go further, run faster, this is all in your head.”  And you know what, it worked!  When I really wanted to stop and take walk breaks, a little pep talk inside my head was all I needed to keep going.

Keep going, friends.  Whatever it is that is so challenging and you think cannot do it…YOU CAN.
