Yesterday evening, for the first time ever in my life, I ran 2 miles non stop and even sprinted for a couple of hundred yards. I was over the moon when my best friend and I passed the two mile marker! 🙂
For me, it’s a huge achievement for someone who, at this time last year, could barely walk down the stairs without being in pain. It was because I used the power of choice that I was able to finish the run.
As much as I feel that I it was great achievement I am also aware that there is also much yet to do! My long term, “Greater Me” vision that I hold about myself is to run the marathon within the next two years. If I, Amit, a former 22 stone couch potato, now a 18.5 stone life coach can accomplish this then I hope in some way, it will be an inspiration to other to do the same. Every day is a challenge, it’s never an easy challenge, it takes a huge amount of physical and mental stamina to push through those pain barriers and come through smiling and proud on the other side.
Always have pride in your accomplishments, share them with others with the aim of inspiring them to go beyond their comfort zone and smash the barriers that have built up over time.
