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.
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.
