It is not a goal my husband shares at the moment and as the year is more than halfway over and I know I won't want to get out in the cold, I decided to reach out to a friend to help get motivated. Last night we picked the cause, setting the date for doing a 5K.
As I lay in bed last night doubts surfaced. I have not run in nearly two years. My friend is much more in shape that I am and I don't want to hold her back. Will I have time to prepare in barely a month's time?
Now it's time for me to re-center. I am doing a 5K for me, not to keep up or impress anyone else. It is a commitment to myself that I set a goal for this year. And I'd always rather try than shy away from the possibility of not doing well. This is for me and now is the time to start training.
I'm grateful to re-center. I'm so grateful for my friend to help me find a 5K and commit to this goal. I'm so grateful to have a friendly face to run with as I make my first attempt. I'm grateful for so many great causes to run for and finding one that works with my schedule. I'm grateful for this first step in getting back into shape. I'm grateful to know that no matter what place I get, finishing is it's own accomplishment.
What are some goals you want to accomplish this year? How can you let go of worry and commit to trying?
May today give us the courage to try. May we take the steps to meet our goals. Have a beautiful day!
