The Power of 2 Words

I saw a comment on a friend's facebook wallpost this morning. She was mentioning something about being sick-ish and was questioning why in the world she was up at 5:00 AM to run. A friend of hers commented and two little words really stuck out at me. The whole comment was something like, "well, think of those folks who do not even attempt to run because they are mentally defeated..."

Mentally. Defeated.

Am I mentally defeated?

I don't mean just in regards to this whole running thing. It is more like in regards to everything. Okay, not everything, but a lot of things...

These words are truly haunting me this morning. I am not even sure what else to say at this point.

  1. I am learning...that after the first couple weeks, running has become mental. But those first few weeks were TOTALLY physical. I was sore, I was huffing, I hurt.

    Do you believe you can run? (I believe you can.)
    Do you want to run? (Ya gotta want it- otherwise it's totally not worth it. Face it...running is hard.)

    Remember, you don't have to run for exercise- there are lots of other exercises. But if you want to, you can do it.

    You can do it!
