Exciting News Check!
I'm not going to pretend showing up every day is easy whether it works in your favor or not. Showing up everyday means you are going to have some extremely public fails. Those everyday fails where you slept longer than needed and are behind on your goals. Or those days where you comfort eat and you added a couple of lbs. Or you went after a goal so publicly and failed. Showing up daily on social media has been the most difficult thing I've ever done, but being myself authentically in the process has enabled me to do this. So showing it all including the tears.
However, last week I received some incredible news which I'm hoping I can update you more in the month to follow. When you show up so publicly people may think of you for an opportunity. Like seriously this opportunity I have only 10 people were chosen and remember I am not in the fitness industry. I am an IT Consultant!
I won't lie to you this opportunity is for more long distance running and the longest I've run is for 15 minutes at the pace of the speed of light. So I've fully accepted that I will be the worst in the room, but I'm not letting that stop me from going for this challenge. I don't quit and that most certainly works in my favor. And as always I will be one for the people. So say, "Yes" and figure it out later.
The next few weeks of my training will be dedicated to finding the perfect longer run routes and getting my body used to it ready for the challenge. It's going to be interesting, but it's certainly going to be worth it.
My ability to walk out of my comfort zone has most definitely paid off! So please never be afraid to walk out of yours. If you shout out into the universe it may even shout back at you!
