It didn’t take me too long into my childhood to realize that I wasn’t destined to be a great athlete. While it can be healthy to realize your limitations and set realistic expectations, I think that I robbed myself of experiencing accomplishment by never pushing myself to achieve just as much as I could in any kind of physical challenge. I’ve always been frustrated that I can’t run a mile (or 1/4 for that matter!) but never really believd that this was an achievable goal. I’m now realizing that if I don’t believe I can do it, I’ll never find the strength to push myself to do it.
Tonight I pushed hard and increased from 9 run 1/walk 1's to 15 of them! I'm starting to think that just maybe I can do this. Thanks so much for all of your encouragement along the way. You guys have been great!
