So after months and years of training, injuries, SELF-DOUBT and excuses it ended up being about the journey after all. The conclusion of the marathon for me was really just not about anything other than another run on another windy day. This day there happened to be 8000 others with me and that was a bit of a distraction, but it really was a little anti-climatic. The journey concluded yesterday with a $1.99 decal that is now in my glove compartment. I do not feel the need to display this on my bumper or back window but I did feel the need to buy it and this was the final moment in my head that I had completed the challenge that I had set forth. Really? A 2 dollar sticker? Yup!
I did not even realize it until the day before walking around the expo. All of the vendors at the event had all of the stuff out and there were literally hundreds on different iterations of 26.2. However I wanted it to be from the local store that I bought my shoes from for the 3 years. Yes a 2 dollar sticker! So yesterday I dove out of my way to part with $2.11 with tax. I even paid cash and I HATE change.
The point here is that I made a commitment to myself to finish what I started and that the reward however small it may be is mine and mine only. The stupid little sticker in my glove box says to me that I can do it.
You can do it also. You need to have goals. Both big and small. Both internal to yourself and out loud for everyone to hear. Make your goals big and boisterous. If someone tells you you can't or that won't work, guess what?
You my friend are on the right track................
It's ALL about core,
