Remembering, learning and still believing.

Ahhh the broken foot – there seems to be no improvement with this foot.  After almost three weeks in this boot it still hurts as much as it did on the day it happened.  I woke up slightly sad about it.  Not running or cycling is making me nuts and putting a lot of pressure on my right leg.  Yes, I am still training and doing pilates,  but I feel as though I am getting further not closer to my goal.  Yet within the hour of that feeling a friend wrote me and said – hope the foot is healing but  if anyone I know is going to get this marathon done is you 🙂 .   As she wrote running is a mental game and if i know of anyone that has this its you!

Life is funny that way, within an hour of feeling sorry for myself a random friend wrote me and said “You got this!”  She is right – I have this!  I have lived always believing in myself whether it was getting into summer camp, college or business school. I  have always believed I could beat all obstacles.  I am a fighter, I work hard, and I truly believe in myself.  The broken foot may be a setback, but this too shall pass!

Believing in myself, taking care of myself, surrounding myself with an amazing cheering squad and laughing everyday, those are the keys to my happiness and success! Oh and I always shoot for the moon and run to the stars 🙂
