I’m no Michael Jordan.

I’m a 51 year old woman, training for my 2nd marathon.

I ran 4 x 1 Mile splits last night.  In around 9:20-9:30 pace.  I did 40 squats.  I embarrassed myself summarily as cars were driving by…putting the squats DOWN.  I was drenched in sweat.

I’m not legendary.  Only to myself.  And my kids.  And my dogs.

But.  At the end of the day, it’s really NOT about the marathon.   It’s about THIS workout.  How I pulled it out.   All over the streets of our town.  How I didn’t think I could do it.

And.  And I did it anyway.

No excuses.  If I can do it, anyone can.

  1. You are such a bad ass!!! You are the girl that, when cars pass, they all say, “There she is again! She’s always after it! Always training!” 🙂 I’m so proud of you! You *are* legendary! My supah stah hero! Sheerah! Wonder Woman! Take your pick…you encompass them all! Keep kickin’ ass and takin’ names! xoxo

  2. I love your attitude!

    “No excuses. If I can do it, anyone can” is going to be my quote this week.

    Great post!

  3. From another blog I read: “It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.” ~unknown

    Chin up! You are much more than you give yourself credit for….
