“The people who are the most successful know who they are, what they believe and why they are pursuing what they’re pursuing.” – Paul Angone
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved to try new things. From a new dance move to a new dish, doing something other than the norm is totally my jam.
So when I decided to pick up running two months ago, I didn’t think it would be any different than other ‘new things’ I’ve taken on in the past. (Boy, was I in for a rude awakening.)
The first time I ran 3.2 miles with District Running Collective (DRC), I honestly didn’t think I was going to make it. While I started off at a decent pace, the moment I saw people whizzing past me, I got flustered and self-doubt set in immediately. I griped, complained and damn near cried for half a mile. But luckily my good friend Ashlee was there with me every step of the way to cheer me on until we finished. ☺️
