So, I guess I’m getting ready for a 10k. I’ve officially signed myself up for the Rock ‘n’ Roll 10k in December. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a little (a lot) excited and quite a bit nervous. Honestly, I think this is a step in the right direction, though. Something to get my mind ready for and to look forward to. Also, something to motivate me to do my best. What also puts my mind at ease is know that people, specifically some of the PlyoFam, are going to be right there with me.
In the past, I’ve been pretty vocal about some of the goals that I have, even if they are ones that won’t come to fruition for years to come, but one of them is running. Now, I’m not running this one. I’m walking it, but you have to start somewhere.
So, the big question is…what is this going to take? I’m really not sure but I know that I’m going to need some goals and determination to reach them. I really am excited about this. In the past, I’ve wondered if I’m really cut out for all of this but when I think about doing things like this, it makes me feel so excited.
You know, although sometimes it may feel like it, I haven’t lost my drive. I haven’t lost that idea that one day I’m going to be completing some sort of marathon. I just think that maybe I let those negative feelings overcome my goals sometimes. It’s that feeling of insecurity. It’s okay, though. I’m in it now. I’m ready for all that comes at me. I’m going to give this my all because why not? Isn’t this the kind of stuff I’ve always wanted to do. Isn’t this the type of goal that I’ve been waiting for? Why not go for the big goal? Why not push yourself to see how far you can go? I know one day I will make it.
