New Year. New Possibilities.
Wed, December 14, 2016 | link
2016 has been an interesting year.
- I think of those of you who ran the San Diego RnR Full -- and
what an incredible triumph that was.
- I think of those of you, like me, overcame setbacks and just kept going.
think of all the amazing friendships formed, support demonstrated and finish lines crossed.
are all magnificent -- and you have much to be proud of.
I also think of all my Solemates from over the
years -- especially those who want to come back but just can't quite make it. For all of you, I offer you this:
Don't worry about the past -- what you could or could not do before. You get a clean slate, a fresh start.
You have the best support system here EVER. Trust me -- I needed it. I understand just how hard it is to feel
like you've gone backwards, and what I learned this year is that it's totally okay to be at whatever level you're at TODAY.
Actually, no one really cares! I mean, they care about you -- not how fast or gracefully or tough you are. You
will be loved here.
3. Just set your alarm and drag yourself out of bed and get your ass going. You don't
have to be happy about it at the time. You can curse my name. You can be grumpy in the car. But you'll feel better
later. We both know that.
4. You love hills.
5. I miss you. I want you back. Be
the new kid again and experience the joys of rediscovering what you're capable of.
2017? Bring it on! We
can do it! It's going to be amazing!
So... let's be amazed together. See you Saturday!
Many of our members joined Sole to Soul to
train for their first 1/2 marathon. Most of us never thought that running 13.1 miles was even possible when we first
started training but, together, we learned that we could do it.
Our running motto is "At Peace With My Pace." I believe
that with encouragement and support, you can cross the finish line -- still upright, smiling and ready to sign up for another
can do this, too; please email me with questions!
