Throughout my training so far, I’ve found myself saying the classic phrase of “I’m running the marathon”, then always clarifying it with “but I’m not a runner!”. Yet, I’m running at least 2.5 miles, three times a week. Therefore, I run! Just typing that sentence feels so weird but equally I don’t see why it should? For sure I’m not super quick, for sure, there are people who might even be able to walk quicker than I can run. But I run! I should also remember that this is the kid who had major spinal surgery at 13 and fell down the stairs in one of my only attempts at playing tennis – but now look at me!
If there’s something that you want to do but don’t know where to start or don’t think you’ll be able to – just start, you never know where it will take you!
