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!

  1. You should definitely throw in an OCR if you haven’t done one! Just choose one without enough electricity to take down a bull. I’ll never see how that could be fun.
