Challenge Yourself to Change Yourself | MARY’S BLOG

believe-in-selfSo I have been thinking that some of you following my blog may be wondering what was the big deal? She only ran a half marathon. It wasn’t a marathon or even an IronMan! Well the reason I shared this journey with you is because I always said I wasn’t a runner. For so long, I told myself that I couldn’t run (for various reasons) and so I believed it. Then I decided to challenge myself and my way of thinking.

If you want to change yourself, then you need to challenge yourself, both physically and mentally. Set a fitness goal and train for it. Something that is within reach that you have never done (or at least for a while). It doesn’t matter if it’s walking a mile, running a 5K, holding a scorpion handstand in yoga, competing in a Crossfit contest, setting a weight lifting goal, being a Tough Mudder, competing in a fitness show, or finishing an Ironman. We are all capable of achieving if you put in the training and believe in yourself!

It’s been a busy month since I ran my half marathon and I can already tell I need to set a new goal! I need to have something to work towards. Something that will make me get running again. So I just signed up for a marathon relay with some friends….that should help!

Never stop challenging yourself to #findyourstrength!




I write blogs about my accomplishments, my failures, my doubts, my goals, and my inspiration. But, it’s really not about me. It’s about real life and the challenges we each face and continuing to find your strength along the way. I want to inspire people, but I also want them to see the real me. I am just a normal person trying to do the best I can with what I was given. This is my journey and you have yours.  Nobody is perfect…all the time. We all suck at things. -Mary Sheckler
