So I heard that for the 5K, there would be no break-down competitions by age. And being not-in-the-lesser-years catagory, I felt the anxiety set in. That’s not fair! I can’t win. Why am I doing this then? Then we had a chat.
Myself and I had a convo. #1…It’s not really about the 5K. That is just a finale placed at the end of the 12 weeks as a celebration. #2… What really matters? That I’m there. That I followed through and finished the program. That I crossed the finish line.
But there’s more…That’s really just Chapter 1. NOW, I continue the story. I plan on joining the Y and making it a part of a habit. I plan on doing more 5K to have more chapters to write. In September I plan on doing a 3 day/30 mile Pledge for Pink/Tutus for Tatas walk/run in Hilton Head. So I need to set goal after goal to keep driving me to go farther and do better and be the best I can be. And it’s not about me…
I have many mission trips that I want to take and be used by my Jesus. God has given me ability to be strong so I have few physical distractions from serving him. Within His will, of course….As I’ve said before, there’s not much over which we have control so I need to be responsible for blessings I’ve been given.
So my old spirit says I have to be the winner of the competition. Truth says I am a winner in the eyes of my Jesus. That’s all that matters.
