I’m excited to run a half marathon this weekend. As race day approaches, I’ve been peppered with the customary questions from people wondering why I put myself through such an ordeal. My answer is really two parts. First, I like running. I like the feeling of accomplishment, the fact that it takes both physical and mental strength to finish. Second, as one of my favorite motivational speakers like to say, we should all do difficult things. Doing difficult things gives you the mental perspective that you can do anything you put your mind to. Running a long race once or twice a year keeps me believing in myself. Whether it be fitness, finances, my job, or anything in life, if I can make my body run continuously for 10, 13.1 or 26.2 miles, I can do anything.
Fist pump for running, and my favorite posts of the week!
