Afraid to Fail...Excited to Start


Recommended Posts

Hi...a little nervous knowing i will be running this evening. I can wall on the treadmill at 3.5 for forty five minutes jist fine...but the running (even at short intervals) is somewhat scary...what if i cant run the full time? I will push myself. Looking to get healthier and in shape...looking to show my son what hard work and determination cant get you...looking forward to doing my first 1/2 marathon this year and feeling accomplished...

It is absolutely OK if you cannot run the full 5K. Focus on what you can do today, and "so what!" on the rest. AND GOOD JOB on pushing yourself to reach further - your son will see an empowering exemplar of perseverance!  Keep at it. As Azatol shared above:  

"If you get out there and try, you've already won!"


So, no need to scared, as the rest will come with practice, (your hard work and determination)!

Very cool that you have a half marathon in your sights!   I'm still quite far behind, yet I look forward to having this goal as well! Awesome!!
