So something I said I would never do again I am doing....Running. LOL.
After I ran my half marathon a long time ago I told myself I wouldn't run EVER again but my how things have changed! I think the biggest thing I've learned recently is never say never. You never know what relationships will grow, what will change, what you'll be feeling, what opportunities will come across your lap and what doors will close, so I've been trying to take a lot of change in stride now. I'm working with Whitney Miller with Transcend Health & Wellness and she is my running coach. Just last week we picked out a 5K for me to participate in during the fall and I'm so excited! I don't know about you but there's just something about having a goal that lights a fire in you.
I'll be officially going through her coaching program within the next few weeks and will be taking you along the journey! I'm excited to dive into it and really see how not only this will help me become a better runner, but also help me grow into being a better athlete and a human all the way around. What a lot of people don't realize is that stress can really hinder any area of growth in your life. I have walls of them right now and I'm looking forward to breaking those barriers down with Whitney by my side.
Last weekend I ran with her and it was awesome! I NEEDED her accountability. It was HOT. I wasn't in the mood to run. I was tired. I didn't show up in a positive mindset. I essentially had all the wrong things playing against me that would cause a negative coaching session. BUT- she showed up, with all her positive vibes and energy and really help me change my mindset as I began to run. I've mentioned this before but lately my right knee has been bothering me and it always starts to ache shortly after I hit two miles. As we were running, I had Whitney there the entire way pushing and encouraging me to keep going- regardless if I decided to stop and walk.
You guys, accountability is SO IMPORTANT! It really helps me focus to the finish line and I love having that extra push as I'm battling a negative mindset. So needless to say I finished! I did walk a little it but I got it done :) Afterwards Transcend Health and & Wellness had an Essential Oils for Athletes Workshop at Bargersville Wellness and it was great to learn how all of these oils can really benefit me in everyday life, and also as a person living a very active lifestyle.
