Sometimes timing is everything.

life is all about timing

 

We might wish for something or really want something to happen, but it is just not available at that time. Other times the exact thing we need might be right in front of us. Runners are always thinking about timing. Timing of races, training plans, personal records, pace. How we can change our timing…

Over time we realize that we can influence the opportunities we have, even if we can’t control their timing.

If you really want something, you usually have to put in the effort to get it. I tell my boys and my soccer kids all the time that effort and consistency will take you where you need to be. Even if you don’t know the final destination, every effort will lead you there. In running, every training run makes you a better runner. Maybe you are getting faster or you can run farther. Maybe you can sign up for the race you have been dying to run or hit your PR. Every run counts. Every practice counts. Every time you do something that is hard for you, you get better. Test your limits every once in a while.

I am so thankful for the opportunities I have had along the way and I have no regrets about taking them.

start where you are do what you can

It’s finally starting to feel like spring here, and everything feels fresh and new and exciting. Is it making you think about what you want to accomplish? It is for me and I can’t wait to see where my new opportunities will take me.
