my Real BlogHelping ordinary people become extraordinary athletes.
That’s a horrible idea…what time?
Having a little Flashback Friday Fun…
I wasn’t always an endurance athlete in great shape. It all started when my friend Red asked me to do a 5K with her. When I tried to get out of it by saying I didn’t run, she didn’t let me off the hook. You can walk, she said. So I agreed and promptly began training because once I commit to something I go all in!
Race day came and I finished in 32:05. Feeling proud of myself, I started to wonder if I could break 30 minutes so I started running a bit more. Then Red said we should do a 10k. Again I balked. Again she convinced me to do it. Again I was proud when I crossed the finish line.
I’ve lost count of how many races I’ve done, but each time someone invites me to a new adventure I know that I am so lucky to be able to challenge myself to do bigger and better things. And thankful to have a good friend who knows just how to ignite that fire that I didn’t even know I had.
I share this because I want you to know that you can do it, too. Just start somewhere…wherever you are. And little by little, over time, you will start to build momentum. And before you know it, you will find yourself doing things you never imagined and it eventually it will just seem normal.
So find that horrible idea and sign up.
