11.11.11 is a day I have literally been waiting for my whole life.
To celebrate this day I wanted to write an extra special post. I thought long and hard about what I would write about but came back to my mantra. Dream Big, Run Long.
What it means to Dream Big. Dreaming Big means coming up with a dream that you think may be a bit crazy but you go after it anyways. Dreaming Big means having a goal and doing what it takes to make it happen. Dreaming Big is achieving your dream and then setting a new even bigger one. Dreaming Big means silencing your inner critic and achieving the life you only thought possible in your dreams.
Have you ever wanted to be proud about an accomplishment but not come across as bragging? Here is your chance.
Tell us – How did you Dream Big this week? This month? This year?
Did you run your first race? Did you go for your first run? Did you have a baby? Did you sign up for an ultra? Did you complete a marathon? Did you apply to college? Did you land your first job?
The only rules are you can not be SHY and only positivity allowed. The dream can be one you achieved or one you want to achieve.
My hope is that you will be encouraged by the comments others leave, that you will come back to this post time and time again adding new comments on how you dreamed big in your life. You never know when your Dream may inspire others to Dream. May your goals encourage others.
|They are WHY I dream big|
- I set the goal to go under 3:20 in the marathon. I ran a personal marathon PR of 8 minutes with a time of 3:13 – 1 hour and 7 minutes faster than my first marathon in 2003. I did this 11 months after my third baby was born.
Why I like the number 11 —
11 is my favorite number. I was born on 4/11 and am named after my great-grandmother who was born on 4/1 – April 11 is the 101st day of the year. I like numbers that are the same forward and backwards like 818 – flip it and it is 818. 11 is 11.
