Yesterday I did the trail run at my MILs house. Its been a while, and I remembered having an epiphany last year on this exact trail. (Blog date is Aug 6th "Aliens have eaten my brain") I realized that running was coming easier.
Now that was after a summer of running and working hard. Yesterdays run was not nearly as easy - so for curiosity I looked up my time for that "easy" run vs yesterday's harder run.
Both times: 27 min.
I feel this is significant, although I'm not sure exactly how.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
I am powerful beyond measure. Perhaps a marathon in a few years is not such an insane idea.....but I want to get past the HM this year first before I commit!
