Ready to Run


I’ve always been able to push myself further, farther, faster, stronger with anything I put my mind to except running. I did my first 5k because of peer pressure and although I placed fourth in my age division I still had it in my head that it was just a fluke.

I thought it was something that I did once and wouldn’t probably do again. I told myself “running is just not for me”. Then I did a 5k obstacle and loved it, so I signed up for another 5k and placed second in my age group!

I still told myself though that I “wasn’t a runner”. I resigned myself to the fact that I would never run further than 3.1 miles because I was “not a runner” and I was okay with that. Recently though I have learned that I’m capable of running longer distances if I just put my mind to it, like everything else. Through some encouragement, I have registered for two longer distances races. One is a 10k that’s coming up next weekend
