Pinspiration Thursday

I decided to dive back into the quote book again for today's Pinspiration Thursday. I'm feeling nostalgic about all the time I invested in it. Up until two weeks ago, it's been collecting dust. Time to put it to use again, I thought. There's a reason I wrote down all those quotes, right? Yes. So, I give you this one:

I find it particularly inspiring because I just started training for the Chicago Women's Half Marathon. I ran my last—and only—half marathon in October of 2009. So, almost three and a half years ago. Life has certainly changed since then, and I won't have as much freedom to train. But, really...that doesn't matter. I can do this. It'll be easy at times, also hard. 13 miles seems quite long to me right now, but I just have to remind myself that, even though it's a race, I'm not running against anyone else. Just myself.

I'll be running this race for the pure enjoyment of it. To prove to myself that I can do it. And that's what you have to do when faced with a challenge. Tune out the distractions. No matter what, it's all about you.

And you're the only one that'll keep you from crossing the finish line.

PS: There's still time to enter my Happy Family giveaway. Tell all your mom friends!

Question: Have you signed up for any races lately? Are you currently in the midst of a great challenge against you and yourself? Tell me about it.
