And then I thought about all the times I was disappointed in myself because my time was not as great as I wanted it to be. That I had to take an extra minute of walking during my intervals. Have you ever done that? Have you ever focused on what you thought was a failure without realizing all that you really accomplished? Don't do it. Don't go there. It's a waste of energy. Focus on all you have accomplished.
Life is too short too short to waste time on the negative. Be thankful that you got out there. Seriously, be thankful. My mother struggles to raise one finger on either hand and considers it a victory when she can move two. She doesn't have time to dwell on the things she can't do but focus on the things she can and the small improvements she makes each day. So until she can run, I will run for her.
