Every day, Facebook reminds me of what I posted “On This Day” in previous years. Sometimes there isn’t much of note, other times there are things that make me smile.
On Saturday, I saw a post that has helped to remind me of what I’m capable of when I find a way to motivate myself.
That’s me while on vacation four years ago. I was up and ready to hit the cruise ship’s gym at 6am and, as you can tell by the look on my face, I couldn’t be happier.
While I’ve been working hard over the past few weeks to become a better person and not let this unemployment situation get the better of me, I still haven’t gotten to the point where I was in terms of running.
I’ve officially signed-up and paid for a half-marathon that I fully plan on completing in September, yet I haven’t begun training for it (which is insane, really). This photo helped remind me of just what I was capable of when there was a challenge put in front of me.
So today marks Day 1 of my training. I thought that was going to be a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve been working on myself mentally and emotionally instead of physically. Now it’s time to put it all together.
