Ask yourself this.
If you do not BELIEVE in yourself how can others?
If you do not think you can run a 5K. Then you can’t.
If you do not think you can run a 10K. Then you can’t.
If you think that 13.1 miles is more than you will ever run in your lifetime. You are right.
If you think a marathon is for ‘real runners’, but certainly not for someone like you. Again, you are right.
If you think an ultra is plain crazy. It is and you probably won’t run one.
If you think that the only way you will ever get to run the Boston Marathon is by running for a charity, then you most likely will never BQ.
If YOU however think that you can run a 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 and possibly even an ultra, then you can and most likely WILL.
If you believe that you have the strength within you to complete an ultra, then it does not matter what any one else says. YOU WILL.
If you want to BQ and are discouraged by the new qualifying times, then you might not ever make it there.
If you see the new times as a challenge you plan to rise to no matter how many times you get knocked down [which may happen more than you want], you will get there. You will BQ.
Your mind is your biggest fan and also your worst enemy. Quell the negative thoughts and believe in yourself.
