In Competition with Myself

I’m still coming off of Monday’s high of having run my first 5K without any walking.  Throughout my run I kept telling myself “I can do this.”  Without a doubt, giving myself a pep talk throughout Monday’s run is what got me to complete it without thinking that I had to stop running.

Today Sarah at Strong-Fit-Beautiful posted a quote that is very fitting for where I am in my journey right now.


I am currently in competition with myself.  It doesn’t matter how fast I run, or how many people run a race faster than I do, as long as I win against my own inner demon and complete what I’ve set out to accomplish.  I know that I can physically run a 5k, or whatever distance I put my mind to.  I cannot allow myself to tell myself otherwise.  I know I can do it!
