So I’m training for a Marathon and I can’t believe I’m doing this willingly. Almost a year ago it seemed like a great idea! I had just finished my second half-marathon and I thought I’ve done two, surely I can do a full. I’m 26 days away and I’ve thought of at least 26 reasons why I shouldn’t run.
Each day gets harder and harder. My body aches but I haven’t had any major injuries. I’m extremely tired but I only sleep 4 to 5 hours anyway. I still can’t run continuously and only run intervals but I’m still within my projected goal. Let me rephrase, I’m still within my adjusted projected goal finish time! For some reason I thought I could finish in 5 hours, I’ll be happy if I finish in 7 now. I could go on and on with all the negative thoughts that pop in my head but I won’t.
The main reason I keep going…I’m not a quitter. I don’t give up! I finish what I start! My life has been filled with obstacles, barriers, and battles. Like the Falcons, I “RISE UP”! (We are 5-0 right now so I couldn’t resist the reference! F.I.L.A.)
In other words, I’m not only training for a marathon, I will complete a marathon. It’s not easy but then again if it were easy, everyone would do it. The countdown is on and I look forward to sharing my journey with you! #roadto26point2 #riseup #icantmessupmyhair
