HELL YES. People always say “I could never do that!” When they hear about my races. (News flash: YOU CAN!)
On Sunday, I was struggling with a training run. Tired, sore feet, bored... I thought to myself, this isn’t a gene I was born with or some magical skill I’ve learned, this is COURAGE 🦁. It takes courage to sign up for a race, knowing that there’s a potential of failure (😧, isn’t there always with new things?). Not even the best training can ensure you’re going to succeed. So I’m reminded to be thankful that I have the courage to keep going, to try anything, to push my body and my mind in ways I didn’t think I could. Embrace those sore feet - keep going. To all my homies doing big, courageous things, I salute you because it isn’t always easy but it’s worth it! And if you’re not, just know that I know that you’ve got what it takes.
