I prepped all my stuff tonight that I didn’t mail ahead of time for my big 24 hour race this weekend. I head out tomorrow for the race and I am ready as I can be for it. My goal is to go beyond 63 miles for this race because it is actually kind of a training run for my favorite and big goal race in May, but I am not tied to the outcome so much. Hell, I mean the journey to get here alone is life and body changing. If I hit my goal……AWESOME……….if I don’t……….AWESOME. I put the work in for this and should be able to get it but stuff happens in life and running but knowing that I did my best and kept my promise to train and get to the starting line means the most of all. Which brings me to the most wonderful discovery of all.
- I/We are capable of so much more than we think at a particular point.
I am doing this, I did the training, and I used to be just some dude that never exercised and ate fast food all the time. Don’t believe me, check this out. I started at some point not ever having run before and had no idea that I could do this but I worked hard for my future self so that he could be the best he could be. I know you may not want to run 25, 50, 63, or 100 miles but what DO you want to do. I bet that you can do far more than you think right now. Just chip away at your vision……..your goal, with an open heart that keeps the ultimate goal of personal growth as the foundation. YOU CAN DO THAT THING YOU DREAM OF!
