I really hope my legs DON’T decide to shrivel up and punish me me for all my stubborn milage in five years.
I hope they give me at least
10 15 more good years…I mean, its hard NOT to think how great my life will be when I hit my prime running age…pray I get there!
My last 10K was a nice and LOUD wake-up call.
Since then, thoughts of Boston and sore muscles have filled my mind more than ever before.
Oh, and I can actually feel the soreness.
I just wanna be FAST.
OK, wrong word.
That’s better. Lord knows that I am not a fast runner.
Although, I am NOT a slow runner, I know that I have a lot of work to do in order to accomplish my goals and dreams of becoming a boston marathoner.
Why do I want this so badly?
I really couldn’t tell you.
My answer changes every 10 days.
I just think that being a marathoner is…well, cool.
pretty plain and simple.
A bit boring to many, yes.
I could care less if people think I’m cool, or if long distance is a waste of time.
I just want this so bad for myself.
Running to me is the most amazingly selfish thing I have ever loved and done for myself.
I have no regrets.
Thoughts of boston fill my mind constantly, everyday.
I need help. I’m working on being better. Kinda…
I envision myself qualifying within five years and crying the most happiest of tears that I will ever cry in my entire lifetime.
Some people think I am obsessive about running. I think I am just more so intrigued my the fact that I can challenge myself to new limits and not limit myself to any personal best.
I think this mentality can apply to many aspects of life and I am motivated to challenge myself and never give up.
I didn’t get this far to back down.
I will qualify for boston and
I WILL cross the Boston Marathon finish line.
My dream is amazing, know.
No one can stop me now. Not ever.
running drives me.
It makes me feel free.
I hope this post has inspired you to do what you love and to challenge yourself to work hard for what you really want.
This whole Boston Marathon thing is what I want for myself.
but, it is just one thing
out of many.
I will make it happen and make my other dreams come true too, because
no one can stop me; but myself.
But, I won’t let that happen.
NOT slowing down.
Just getting FASTER.
