Motivation Monday-What have I gotten myself into?

What have I done?

I must be out of my mind.

I let my overactive mind, quick to react attitude, and impatience get the best of me.

How?

Well this is how…

September 16, 2012...it is so on!

I have signed up to do my first event! Is it called an event? (Is it called a race or an outing? What?)

Anywho, for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to sign up for something like this and chose the Title 9k run/walk.

I never thought I would do something like this, I am not a competitive or an outgoing/athletic type so this is something out of my comfort level. So what better way to push and motivate myself to work harder and longer right?!

I found this quote (which I may put on a workout shirt for myself) which I am applying to this event:

Dead Last

is better than

Didn’t finish

which trumps

Didn’t start

I always manage to talk myself out of stuff or believe that I cannot do something. This will prove that I can do it. This will prove to me that I am capable of accomplishing something.

I am not going for competition

I am not going for speed

I am going for myself and for the accomplishment.

So as of now, I have 48 days until race day.

  1. It’s a race! Congrats on signing up! Don’t be nervous. The great thing about racing is that you don’t have to compete. Just run and have fun with it. The energy there always makes it a great experience. =)
