I started to run on March 2013. When in my first running, I said myself this is what I want. I felt really good and I wanted to continue. It made me feel free and clear my mind.
Run 7K, 10K, Half Marathon and a Marathon…
I did 7K before but Half Marathon was so crazy for me.
Yesterday was the biggest day because I would run a half marathon.
Before the race I said to myself just keep going. So during the race I try to just move. I was angry to my phone that telling every miles because there were so miles ahead to go! Last few miles I was behind from all of the athletes but I said that you showed the courage to attend this race and you are moving. It is not important to go faster, just run and see the finish line. So I did, I moved and saw the amazing finish line:)
I couldn’t imagine myself if somebody told me 2 years ago:
“You would run a half marathon, 21.5 km (13.1 Miles)!”
But as of yesterday, yes I ran a half marathon!
So I really started to believe nothing is impossible. If you believe yourself and at least start what you really like and want why couldn’t it be realized?
I am an example of it but believe me there are many examples achieved their dreams.
Sure somedays I feel “Ok Asli it is up to now, accept it that you will not be able to realize all of them”.
Of course I have ups and downs like everybody.
But at that time I try to focus my ups. I ask to myself why not, if nothing is impossible then I have to push myself.
My first half marathon was the proof of my belief.
