I refuse to believe that today is the woman I will be tomorrow. I refuse to believe that today’s definition “of me” won’t change, improve, grow and down the road, become a better definition of how I see myself.
As a runner, there is a lot of potential to feel like a slacker. My mileage isn’t what it was this time last year. My race schedule for 2012 is nowhere near what it looked like in 2011.
But guess what? I’m happy. And I’m concentrating on being absorbed in the run: no pressure, no races, no goals….just running.
As a woman, there is a lot of potential to feel like a failure. I’m not always who I want to be. Like you, I make wrong choices and wish I were stronger in some areas of life…and weaker in other areas.
But guess what? I’m content. And I’m concentrating on being absorbed in every moment. I want to make the most of every day and live a life with intention and purpose.
Wherever you are…in your running life….and in your life outside of running, do not allow today to define you.
For you will grow.
And you will change.
Just keep reaching. Keep seeking. Keep striving to be a better version of you.
And stay tuned. I think the best days are ahead of us.
