I am Only Half Crazy | MARY’S BLOG

I hurt my ankle running in the snow a couple weeks ago so I didn’t run as much as I would have Running Shoeliked last week. But, I just got back from a long run. I have one long run left, the one I have been dreading…10 miles. There are less than two weeks of training remaining. There’s no turning back now. I have put in the work to accomplish it. I want to do this because I set a goal that I know I can achieve. I need to do this because it’s something I never thought I would attempt.

Could I have trained more? YES. Should I have started sooner? YES. Am I a little nervous? YES. Do my friends question why I am doing this? YES. Do I feel like I am crazy? YES, but only “half” crazy…I mean it’s not like I am running a marathon!

I am going to put on my running shoes and finish this. I am going to have fun, but I am really going to enjoy crossing the finish line. Most importantly, I am going to show my 12 year old overweight self that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. Because every little (and big) girl out there needs to know…they are strong and capable of anything!  #likeagirl #keepfindingyourstrengths




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
