In the meantime, I've been spending lots of time hunting my monsters in different ways... like this one: I ran Bay to Breakers yesterday!
|Bay Bridge, Morning, San Francisco.|
|Don't know who this Jack was, but he was excited. I'm on the right.|
Next to the bunny...
|Friends! Getting ready to run!|
I never thought I was a runner... never thought that one day I would run more than 7 miles and still have any energy at the end of it... Apparently that's only mental! Because after working toward it, training and making myself get out there, even when I was nervous and less than confident in myself, I succeeded!
No I wasn't the best. I didn't WIN the race, but I ran it. I finished it. I finished well. I'm hoping to translate some of the lessons I'm learning through running about myself and my will power to the other areas of my life that I love and care about (like my art and my writing).
I'll go into more detail on some of those lessons later... they'll be worth unpacking here, I think.
What do you challenge yourself to do? What puts you out of your comfort zone and teaches you something about yourself?
