Marathon Training: Almost There

So here I am, just a little over 2 weeks out. I’m not going to lie to you.  I am ridiculously nervous about this.  Unfortunately, training hasn’t gone as well as I would have liked it to.  Still, I will not be denied.  I will continue to move forward and will finish this no matter what.  As with anything in life, there comes a point when you have to decide how bad you want it.  You have to decide if you are going to be willing to go above and beyond and continue to push yourself when others may not be willing to do the same.  There may come a point in this race when I have to dig down with everything I have just to finish.  I am willing to make that sacrifice.

This is also why I love sports.  This not only applies to this race, this applies to life.  I don’t know what you’re involved in.  Maybe you decided this is the year you are going to lose weight.  Maybe you’re a business owner like me and have decided this is going to be your year.  That you are going to grow far beyond where you are now.  That you are going to make more money than you’ve ever made before.  Maybe you have a goal of getting to Disney World with your family.  Whatever the case may be, I can guarantee there will be unforeseen circumstances.  There will be moments when you’re going to have to look at yourself and tell yourself you have to move farther than you are now.  That you have to be willing to invest in yourself more than you are now.  Whatever the case may be, I hope that you can be inspired to continually push forward and to defeat everything that gets in the way.

So, how bad do you want it?

Yours in Health,

Dr. James Ashley, DC
