5/1/13 ACTION

I flipped my calendar this morning and I really like the motivational quote for May

“TAKE TIME TO DELIBERATE, BUT WHEN THE TIME FOR ACTION HAS ARRIVED STOP THINKING AND GO IN”   Napoleon Bonaparte. 

I will NOT let all the negative thoughts and actions recently on my part hinder me from accomplishing what I set out to complete.  Last August I was so anxious to get the all clear from the surgeon to go ahead and start running again.  I finally got it and was so happy and started running - Maybe I should call it jogging since I really don’t go at the speed you might call RUNING.  I do however classify myself as a “Runner” - a slow one but still a Runner! 

Once I started I could not wait to get up there in miles - It’s really true what they say about a runners high.  The endorphines are CRAZY and it can be so rewarding each time you go just a little further than you did the last time.  Mile stones are reached and you set new ones and carry on.  There are times running is not fun - we all have those days when our negative voice screams the loudest, when life, family and just plain living get in the way.  What we do with those obstacles determines our success.  Set backs will happen - accept them and carry on!

Race day is fast approaching and I will speak NO MORE negative talk about the race.  When somone asks me about the race I will speak with enthusiasm and excitment - instead of worry and dread.  Race will be completed (before or after the set race time…who cares!).  I know my BFF will be waiting for me at the finish line - and if for some reason she can’t go I know she will be there in spirit.  I will cross the finish physcially alone but in my head I will hear the roar of the crowd and all my friends and family who have supported me through out my journey back to running. 

Wow - getting deep in here or is it just me

Have a great day!
