Training Mode... running the Sahara
The Sahara!? Well, not really.
I started running again a couple of weeks ago. And even though I am not really running the Sahara, it felt that way in the beginning. Stepping out from any comfort zone requires a willingness to strip yourself from outdated mental patterns and step into hard work.
I ran my first half marathon a year ago, and it's been the toughest physical pressure I have ever put myself into. I don't want to sound so dramatic, but for my 33 year old body, it really was tough. Today I stand firm on the idea of getting stronger, because I know I can. So, I started training, running everyday, pushing forward. And yes, I plan to run again next January.
My sister texted me last night and recommended me a documentary called Running the Sahara. Wow!!! Talk about motivation. I included the trailer for you to see the incredible journey these three men took.
I may not be running the Sahara, but who's to say I won't one day.
