Liar, liar, pants on fire
Ten months ago I ran in my very first race. I ran 4 miles in 41 minutes 30 seconds. It was the fastest and farthest I had ever run. Before I ran that race, I had doubts in my head.
After I finished that race Preston convinced me I could run a half marathon. Five months later I ran 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 14 minutes. It was the farthest and fastest I had ever run. Before I ran that race, I had doubts in my head.
After I finished that race Preston convinced me I could run a full marathon. It’s been just under five months since I decided I would run a full marathon. In 12 days I’ll be running 26.2 miles. It will be the furthest I’ve ever run. I definitely have doubts in my head.
I’m nervous, wondering if I can really do this. But then I remembered, “the voice in your head that says you can’t do this is a liar.”
Tonight I ran 4 miles in 37 minutes. That was four and a half minutes faster than the first time I ran 4 miles. Maybe I just need to stop listening to the voice in my head. I’m pretty sure it’s a liar. (:
