Super Hero Strength
Saturday, November 01, 2014
About this time last year, I was preparing to walk that half marathon. I had to put it on hold this year due to hip bursitis. Thinking back to that day I had no idea if I could accomplish the goal. I went into that event only half prepared. I had walked only 8 miles as my longest distance. I really was hoping I would survive. It got pretty painful by mile 9 - my blisters really hurt, my hips really hurt, my feet hurt. I had to dig deep and I'm really glad the sag wagon didn't stop by or I might have been tempted.
Now it's a year later, and I'm still struggling in my weight loss journey. I need to realize that the same super hero strength I exhibited on that day, I can exhibit every day. I didn't know if I could do it, and I did it. It got painful, but I persevered. It was awesome getting that medal.
This year I'm only planning on walking the 5K - and that's ok. I have a strength within me that I didn't realize I had - I can do this and I need to realize that!
