Feel the pain and settle into it
Yesterday I decided to hit the trail with my sidekick. This was my first time with the baby in the jogging stroller. I think she liked it 🙂
It was my first run since my session with Rob on Wednesday and I still hurt! I started off pretty good, but not too far into it my legs were burning. I slow down, feel the pain, recognize it, and settle into it. KEEP GOING. That holds true for a lot of things no?
I pour so much of myself into whatever I’m doing. Whether it hurts me or makes me happy. I still stick with it, recognize the pain, and settle into it.
I do a lot of thinking while I’m running. I think about Ben and the kids, I think about my friends, where they are, what they are doing, we should get together, do something. I think about mundane things, need to go through this or that, run to the store, etc. I think about where I want to be tomorrow, next week, next month, next year. I think about myself, my passion, what’s the next move I can make to get me where I want to go.
We are all really lucky. Some people see a vision and become that. Some people have to work harder than others. My reality is so different than the person sitting next to me. I have to remember that. I work hard, yet I still struggle.
I want more. I always want more. I’m not talking about material possessions. I want more life out of life. I said it before, I’m full of passion, “let’s do this!”. I’m a very excitable person. I get excited about everything, and I’m not afraid to show it. Give me an inch and I’ll run a mile for you. Remember people, my passion. You need something? I’m your girl. I like making other people happy, but I have to remember I can’t make everyone happy, I’m not pizza 🙂
It wasn’t a great run to be honest, I walked more than I wanted to but I finished. And…mission accomplished:
Be strong, but not rude.
Be kind, but not weak.
Be bold, but not bully.
Be humble, but not shy.
Be proud, but not arrogant.
