As I mentioned in a previous post, I had an out of body experience back in January and decided to sign up for a half marathon in College Station. Well that half marathon was this morning and the good news is... I made it. I was hoping to finish under the 2 hour mark and I pulled out a time of 1hour 55 minutes. Mission accomplished!! It was the perfect morning for a run - cool temps, sunshine, and no wind. The course was fairly flat and fortunately when I started out, my legs felt like they were ready for the run and the cooperated with me the duration.
As I sat in the parking lot this morning at 6:15am, I questioned myself, "why are you doing this run?" I've run this before and know I can do it. I could still be sleeping and going to church with my family. Did I really have anything to prove?? Not to anyone else, but maybe to myself. I think in this crazy life, I sometimes feel pulled 6 different ways and often times feel I can barely keep up. I feel mediocre and need to be reminded that I can do something I put my mind to. I was reminded of that today. It felt great crossing that finish line!
