Why Do I Do This To Myself?

Somewhere around mile 4 I start asking myself this question…

Why do I do this to myself?  I’m only a third of the way done.  I’ve already been running over 40 minutes and I still have a long way to go.

Today our Powered by Hope/Cross Point team ran 12 miles.

12 MILES!!

That’s the distance of my morning commute to work!

As I told you back when I started training this year, my past races have been purely for the sense of accomplishment, but this year I’m running to raise money for New Hope Academy, an outstanding school in Franklin, TN.

Would you consider supporting my goal?  You can access my fundraising page HERE.

    I feel the SAME way! But I sometimes ask myself that around mile 1.5….. Sometimes all I can think about is that I have so much further to go! But just remember- you can do it 🙂 I was hoping to run the half in Nashville this year but being I live in FL I have to be able to travel up there and I can't this year- NExt year though…I'm already planning for it 🙂
