Yesterday I received a wonderful gift, that I had no idea would help me today. My sweet Friend Margene from Believing It's Possible is Half the Battle sent me an awesome gift. It was a rock......But not just any rock. Check out her post on how she gathered this special stone...
Today I needed to get on the Treadmill and run a 5k. I have to tell you that I was not very inspired.....I mean I was REALLY REALLY not inspired to get on that thing. I was really sore from last nights workout, I went to bed too late and did not get all of my sleep and frankly, I wanted to play hooky today and just forget about it.
But here's the deal. I'm training. Training for a 1/2 Marathon, something I've never done before and I need all the training I can get. I really don't have any days that I can skip. I don't have time to waste!!
So as I was wandering around my home, looking for a little inspiration, my eyes fell upon my rock and I remembered my dear Friend, who really sacrificed herself to give me that rock. She pushed hard to reach a goal and made it ~ all the while lugging rocks in her pocket!!!
My rock inspired me to do the same thing. So I got on my treadmill and did my 5k, running all the way without stopping. Because if my Friend can do hard things....So can I!!
Take a look at my inspiration....
I can do hard things....Can you?
