Reflecting on today, now that it feels like it’s 10PM but it’s actually only 6 (but it’s felt like bedtime for about 3 hours...). There are two lines of thinking: 1. That would see today as a failure because I didn’t run the full 5 and I wasn’t first past the line. 2. Recognizing the progress from the start of the year to now. Seeing today for what it is - one more step towards a greater goal.
It doesn’t hurt that this time of year has us reflecting on what we have in our lives.
Going from barely being able to run a minute straight to being able to push past my negativity to SHOW UP today and cross that line - that’s something I’m grateful for.
It was weird not to run with Gertie by my side, but I’m sure she was just as happy to stay home and sleep!
I’m so grateful for everyone that has pushed me this year as I began my coaching journey. The Beachbody community has been a surprisingly supportive, open and inspiring one.
I could never have imagined checking in with people from all over that I’ve never met before, nor did I ever imagine having random strangers follow along, offer me advice, or cheer me on as I move forward.
I am grateful for my body for letting me push it to limits I didn’t know possible.
I’m grateful for my friends @mrbfitness47 and wifey who gave me the confidence I needed to finish today. Not just the race, but just the willingness to show up each and every day. Accountability is so undervalued - but having the right team standing behind you is the difference between failure and making it past the finish line.
So all-in-all, today was amazing! I’m so proud of myself and the many, MANY others who said YES to putting themselves out there and who push themselves to be better than yesterday!
