So some of you may know or may not know but I just completed a Dopey Challenge this past week which consisted of 4 days of racing. My runhomie and I ran a 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon in 4 days. So logistically we ran 48.6 miles in 4 days. I know my mouth just dropped thinking about what we just accomplished.
So about 3-4 months ago I suffered an aggravating injury of plantar fascitis. If any of you have ever been injured before you know that it can be very aggravating when you are not able to do the things you love to do. Well you can imagine how I felt. This race was planned back in December of 2015 so when you realize in September 2016 that there is a strong possibility that you will not be able to walk, run or do any type of physical activity it can be very discouraging.
So I took time off which was sacrificing my ability to truly train. I had to become very creative and train differently to allow my foot time to heal. Well as I was flying to go to Florida to complete this big race so much fear came over me. I kept playing the “What if” card and I even did that on the last day of the 4 days prior to my marathon race. Finally, I said Fe if you quit every time you are fearful you will never accomplish anything. So I did my morning prayer, meditation and yoga that morning and I laced up my shoes and said to myself, “Let’s Do This”
Many of you have fears right now, fear of failure, fear of not being good enough, fear of looking a certain way. My words to you is don’t let FEAR stop you from accomplishing something BIG in your life. If I allowed FEAR to take over then I would have never known my biggest strength, my abilities to accomplish the unknown. I would have never been able to CREATE MAGIC. So stop letting FEAR take over your life and start stepping out on FAITH! Start creating MAGIC in your life.
You can do it…..Dreams do come true….Mine did and they are still coming true.
