I am not a runner. 

I am not an athlete. 

I am just not good at that stuff. 

There’s no way I can do it. 

This has been the soundtrack of my life, inside my own head. I am a Never Runner. 

But here I am, having run a 5K distance without walking even once, for the first time in my life. 


I ran it slow. But I ran it steady, and I felt good, and I was going faster at the end than I was at the beginning, and that’s good enough for me. Also, I want to do it again. 

I am 42 1/2 years old, and I am discovering that I have been talking myself out of things for about 42 of those years. 

I can always do more than I think I can. 

Bet you can too.
