A quick heads up to say the Yes You Can Challenge blog has now been blended with Being Your Best You – same owner, more posts!
Please come and visit the newly updated blog. It’s a work in process but we’re getting there 🙂
The Virgin London Marathon; it’s official, I’m in it with just 10 weeks and counting… Am I insane?! I have had to question my sanity several times on this topic but isn’t that what we do whenever we step outside of our comfort zone?
So, what am I doing to keep motivated and not overwhelmed?
Interestingly, and I guess a reflection of the wonderfully supportive people I have around me, the only question I have been asked is what time I want to finish in. No one has asked me if I think I can or can’t do it, in fact those friends I have spoken to seem incredibly confident I can… and will – gotta love those folk 🙂
All I want to do is finish! And in doing so I will have achieved a goal I set myself quite a few years ago specifically for this year (a big birthday year).
Of course the other bonus is that I will have raised money for Get Kids Going, an amazing charity supporting talented disabled youngsters who have the potential to take part in events all over the world including the 2016 Rio Summer Paralympics but who receive either none or very little funding. And yes, I would love your support via my sponsor page (thank you!)
Am I excited? YES! Experiencing mental discomfort? OH YES! But willing to give 100% anyway? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!
Whether I believe I can or I can’t… I’m right!
P.S – Any marathon runners who can provide me with tips (especially on getting my nutrition right), I’d be most grateful…
