I ran two miles today.
Like, full out, without stopping, I ran two miles.
Now I know you’re probably thinking, “WOW Emily…way to go…that is soooo far.”
Yeah right. I know what you’re thinking. The same thing I’m thinking: two miles is nothing. You see, I have friends who are training for running their next marathon. I know people who can run a 5k every day like it’s no big deal. And while I am so proud of them, I have to admit that there is also a little piece of insecurity within me that says I’m not good enough. If I can’t even run a 5k, then it’s not worth it.
But the truth is this: it IS worth it.
It doesn’t matter if you can’t run a marathon. What matters is that you are trying. What matters is that you are making progress. What matters is that you are better today than you were yesterday.
What matters is that with each step you take, you are one step closer to the shape you want to be.
And don’t just be satisfied with where you are. Be satisfied with where you are going. Good for you. Don’t give up.
That’s my little piece of motivational running advice for today!
