I’m already glad I set a bunch of self-focused running goals for 2019. As my son has become a more independent walker and as cold weather has required more bundling than he likes, his tolerance of being carried for hikes has dramatically decreased. We haven’t been hiking nearly as much as we did six months ago. Instead, we have been running. He loves to ride in our @burleydesign bike trailer (we have a jogging stroller kit) and it has made it a much more positive way for me to get in “mama miles” that he still enjoys. I try and pair our runs with story times at the library, bakery stops, friend play dates, or playground time. Something for him, something for me. Our success rate for runs (neither of us crying too much 😂) has been so good! Definitely feeling a mama runner high lately. Who else runs with their kids?
DON’T BE DISTRACTED BY COMPETITION, FEAR, SELF-DOUBT OR WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING.
Those are all of the stumbling blocks that keep us from our goal- in life- but ESPECIALLY in running!
Running provides such a direct comparison with workout times, race PR’s-& our mega access to everyone’s info via social media- probably doesn’t help us with this. Competition can be a great tool that can challenge us - because iron sharpens iron. But the ugly side of competition is an obsession on how you stack up to everyone else. I think it’s SO important to check your heart & guard against this. That kind of competition will rob you of your joy & keep you from celebrating others’ success. A journey where you’re isolated because you’re so threatened by everyone else sounds like a lonely one.
Fear stops dreamers in their tracks everyday. It stops them with imaginary scenarios that haven’t even played out. It forces them to make safe moves & focus more on self-protection than wild success. It taunts them with the idea of failure- as if it’s the worst thing that could happen to them. It’s not- the worst thing that can happen is if you’re too scared to act on your God-given talent & live small.
How many times do you have an amazing workout & then after you’re flooded with self-doubt? All of the good & amazing things in your trajectory are overwhelmed with all of the reasons why you can’t. Self-doubt will take over if you let those thoughts run wild. 👉🏽OTHERS’ NOISE
You cannot let small thinkers rob you of your big goals. Period. Don’t let people who are scared to put themselves out there keep you from chasing down the things you want. People will always talk. Don’t be so scared of their chatter that it paralyzes you. No message boards can convince me that I’m not destined to succeed.
We have the opportunity everyday to embrace our passion & enjoy the ride. Or we can get choked up by all of these things & let them rob us of our joy & peace -& ultimately distract us from pursuing the success we want & deserve. But like- WHY WOULD WE?! We have the choice. What we focus on, grows. Don’t focus on the wrong things!❤️
