Hello All! So here is the run down of my race at Cypress a week ago. As I stood in the line before the 10k race, I remembered how the 10k use to defeat me mentally and physically. I then took out all the negative thoughts out of my head, and reassured myself #anythingispossible. I believed if I ran this race as if it were practice and believed in my training, I shouldn't be afraid of the outcome.
When the gun went off, I wanted to forget that I was actually racing and just run through the glorious pain. As the race began, I thought to myself, " Run your race! Do not be afraid of failing. This is just the beginning to a victorious season." Running Fearlessly! I looked down at my watch every so often, I wanted to run 5:40 to 5:45 pace. As I ran passed and caught up to the lead runners, I knew I was running my race, smart and it sure felt easy.
When I finished, I was filled with happiness inside. I was also filled with joy and peace and a "THANK GOODNESS THAT IS DONE." Whenever I win races, I feel humble and gracious. I knew after this race, there are possibilities of being fast and running faster and faster. Post race, I've been having the time of my life with the love of my life, working and my family. A late blog post has come due to: sorry... having to much fun. For now, I'm spending time with those that fill me up, savoring each day, running slow, eating lots, drinking much needed coffee, and loving God for giving me such beautiful people in my life.
This 10k was special to me because it helped me to believe #anythingispossible by being positive, believing in my training, and myself.
