Last week I decided to re-evaluate my goals for the Marine Corps Marathon. Nothing drastic just a little more challenging. I’ve always been fond of the Eleanor Roosevelt quote, “If you’re dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.” Well, I’ve always been a dreamer but I usually base my dreams on reality too much. If there’s a 50/50 chance I could fail, I lower my expectations. But I’m done with that. It’s time for me to dream big. What have I got to lose anyway? Happy running this week!
Thanks for sharing this quote – this is exactly what I needed to see this week, especially since I worked on my training plan for my first half marathon this past weekend. As I started plotting out the higher mileage, reality set in that I’m actually pushing myself to do this. But if I weren’t scared/anxious/nervous, then this wouldn’t be a challenge.
You’ve been running strong, I like that you are pushing yourself a little! You never know until you try! Stay positive and motivated, you’ve got this!
