Courage and Goal-Setting
Mon, October 22, 2018 | link
I wanted to talk a little about courage.
It takes courage, after all, to start a training a program, to step
out (literally) of your comfort zone and decide to challenge yourself. Deciding to making running or walking a regular part
of your life can be scary!
It takes courage to run when it's hard to run, to watch other people glide by
you like they have wings, to keep going when you want to stop.
It takes courage to set a goal and to say it out
loud! That goal may be to complete an event every month, to run a half or full marathon, or to show up every Saturday
to do what you can.
It takes courage to start again, to remember being able to run mileage with ease (or
at least that's why we want to remember!) and then to have your body complain with every step.
I want to honor your courage for all that you've accomplished and encourage you to take new courageous adventures.
Start with your soles. Come out and be with us. Be patient and kind to yourself with challenges that make you
stronger every week. Set a goal. Tell us about! Let us help you route your success.
your souls. Find support and compassion and encouragement. Make the transition from dream to reality with love.
Start small. Finish big!
And remember, it's easy to do things that are easy, but true joy comes from working
through the hard stuff and learning what you can do. Be at peace with your pace, and know that I am constantly awed
and inspired by your courage.
Many of our members joined Sole to Soul to
train for their first 1/2 marathon. Most of us never thought that running 13.1 miles was even possible when we first
started training but, together, we learned that we could do it.
Our running motto is "At Peace With My Pace." I believe
that with encouragement and support, you can cross the finish line -- still upright, smiling and ready to sign up for another
can do this, too; please email me with questions!
