Fear Not…

One month from today, I will run my first marathon. Here’s the thing, I said I would NEVER run one. Why? FEAR!

I have run several races at various distances: 5k, 10k, 10 miles and 13.1. I was afraid to run 26.2. I have heard horror stories and I let them get the best of me…until now. Yes, I was afraid at registration as well. But I faced my fear and registered any way.

I have looked fear in the face and started training with others who are running their first marathon as well. I am trusting in my training. I am nervous but no longer afraid. Why? Strength.

This Chase Infinite tank is a reminder of how I need to view my fears. Be strong and face my fears because I can do it. I am stronger than I think I am. I am capable of more. The motto I will use for this race is…

Forget
Everything
And
Run

What fears have you faced and overcome? I am working on overcoming another….stay tuned.
