As a child even, I thought I was doomed to only be good at running very short distances, like running bases in softball or 50 yard dashes (or whatever amount of yards they were) in gym classes...
I was lucky if I could even run an entire lap on the track without feeling like I was going to die.
However, I think I am proof that if you put your mind to it and really want to improve at something, you can do it.
Even if it took me until I was 29 years old, I am now able to say I can run the equivalent to a lap around a track without dying.
Today I made it a goal to complete at least one whole circle (about .32 miles) of my neighborhood as a running interval. I not only did it once which I had never done before, but I did it at least 7 times (alternating in between with speed walking).
I'm so proud of myself, even though I still have a lot of room to meet more goals and improve.
