Achieving the Impossible
Not long ago, a friend posted about an inspirational blog that had to do with achieving something athletically that you considered impossible. I considered that something I would love to do but would be impossible would be to actually win a race. So that became a goal. I set a long term goal for a very specific race, and I began training. Yesterday I ran a 5k run, my second of the season. About 100 meters out, I looked around. If I run as hard as I can, I have a chance to win. So I ran hard for a lead and decided to just stay there as long as possible. It wasn't easy to keep the pace, but leading kept me highly motivated. Sure enough, I hung in there and did the impossible! Pretty exciting to see how dreams come true! Next up, finishing a 10k trail run.
