13.1… The Beginning

13.1… The Beginning

I’m sitting down here right now at my computer with my calendar staring back at me on the table to my left. There’s a pen, a highlighter, and my phone that has an article pulled up that says, “Half Marathon Training: Novice 1.” Looking at the words on that article make me want to hurl.

Half Marathon. Running. Yuck.

Novice 1. Definitely.

One thing you will learn about me is when I get an idea in my head, the majority of the time I just go for it. I didn’t used to be that way. I used to weigh my pros and cons. I used to think, “What will other people think of me?” “What if I fail?” “Can I really do it?” That little voice in my head telling me I’m not good enough or that I can’t used to be one of the loudest voices in my head. The saddest part? I used to listen to it. 

What the two common words are shared amongst all those sentences to describe the past version of me? Used to. I’ve realized that everything is able to be “figured out.” Maybe I don’t know how to start a business… but I can figure it out. Maybe I don’t know how to run a half marathon… but I can figure it out. 

This half marathon is in one month and 10 days. If you ask me how many miles I have ran in the past month, I could count on one hand… maybe even 3 fingers. The old Kelsey would have not even tried because “I’m not a runner.” The new Kelsey has one solid belief that matters in her life and that’s:

Everything can be figured out.

So here I am… a calendar, a pen, and a half marathon training program found on Google. I have absolutely no clue what I’m getting myself into, but I know I can figure it out. 

Follow me along my journey as I prepare and train for my half-marathon. I will be posting weekly blog articles describing the month long journey as I prepare for the Nationwide Half Marathon. There’s going to be ups and there’s most definitely going to be downs… but I hope through my journey I can inspire some other people to just go for it. Whatever that “it” is… sometimes you just have to say yes and figure it out along the way.
