Motivate Monday #17
It’s getting towards the time for planning out goals for 2014.
Half marathon – check
Full marathon – check
Ultra – hmmm, not sure. Fear of failure is an issue…
OCR – maybe, but possibility of injury (and electrocution) is holding me back…
More 5k races – perhaps, but they seem redundant when marathon training…
Let my spirit win and do them all?
Drop my pride and embrace the fear of failure to spur me to new challenges;
Take a gamble, risk possible injury for a bigger reward – the satisfaction of new experiences and conquering another unknown;
Leave reason behind and run shorter races because they’re fun, social and more carefree, instead of rejecting them in favour of big mileage.
I think 2014 is going to have more spirit. Guess I’d better start planning some races!
Who else is thinking of taking on a new challenge and letting their Spirit win?
Happy running everyone!
Get Going, Get Running!
