I’m not a fast runner – or so I thought. I had always seen myself as more of an endurance girl. Sure, I could go the distance. With one full marathon and a handful of half marathons under my belt in recent years, I had proven that. But I had always taken the course slowly.
What’s interesting is that when we give ourselves a label, consciously or unconsciously, we feel compelled to stay true to it. It’s almost as if stepping into a role outside of the confines of that label feels so impossible to us, that sometimes, we won’t even try, or when opportunities come along that disprove the validity of that label, we sabotage them.
Who doesn’t love overcoming limitations?
I hope to see you there!
