I decided to follow him

Posted: November 26, 2013 in Uncategorized

Last see, two, maybe three weeks ago I had a whole bunch of fun running my first half marathon. That is a 13.1 mile run through the streets of savannah ga. I finished my half marathon in 2 hours and 24 minutes. As I mentioned earlier this was my first half marathon. I was cold and nervous from the start. I wasn’t sure if I would finish and if I did I wanted to have a really good time. While I was waiting at the start line I noticed a really tall gentleman wearing a shirt which read “I never quit”. So, of course, I followed this guy for, the first two miles. Shortly after the two miles I found my stride and I didn’t quit.
I like the idea of never quitting. We can be tempted to quit or give up but when we don’t quit when we don’t give up that is what makes is learn new things about ourselves and others. Not quitting is what makes the reward sweeter, our accomplishments build up and work to empower us. By not quitting we help ourselves and others. My advice for everyone, is don’t quit. If you are thinking about quitting find a tall guy wearing a cool t shirt and find your stride.
Peace
