When you feel like quitting...

I want to bring back Motivational Mondays....







I've been slacking lately and thinking....

Can I really meet the goals I made for myself (HERE)?

Can I really finish a 70.3?
Can I really get to my goal weight?

I feel like giving up and quitting every time I struggle. Certain events in my life have made the struggle more difficult. I am happy to say that the stress has cleared, and I'm feeling more focused than I have in a while. The fact is, I wanted to quit at every goal I set for myself. Remembering why I train, why I race, why I try to eat right and loose weight, help keep me going. I want to be strong and healthy for a long lifetime! I want to have fun, and conquer things I never thought I would! I want to look back as a 90 year old lady and tell the story of when I completed a half ironman. I want to inspire others, and myself to be the best that I can be.

So, here's to not quitting!

Have you ever wanted to quit?
What kept you going?
Why do you do what you do?

I felt like quitting Sunday. I hit a wall and did not want to keep going and thought I was crazy. Who do I think I am that i think I can run this far. I finished because the reason I am running is bigger than 13.1. I am going to do this half in memory of my girlfriends daughter who lost her life at 6 years old. No one should have to live though losing a child. And I can do this to support my friend and honor her daughter.

I believe in you. Never give up. Quitting is the easy way out. You're a runner not a quitter. One foot in front of the other -keep repeating. You're an amazing role modl. Exceed your goals. Believe and achieve it!

Cheers to not quitting! It sucks to want to quit...I'v been there. No ones perfect so i think to feel that way once in a whiile is almost a good thing ;)...feeling that way and doing it are two different things though..You got this!

Love your attitude and good job on not quitting. I've been there many times and each time I didn't quit I was so glad and proud.

You can do it!! IT is so easy to quit and I honestly have wanted to quit a lot lately! My initial "quitting" this year wasn't so much quitting as having to prioritize and training went on the back burner, but ever since then when I have trying to get back into shape I have wanted to quit a lot. I am still struggling with it but I just keep telling myself that I will feel so much better after I am done (which is always true). Hang in there girl! You can do it!!! I totally believe that later this year we will hearing about how you completed your goal of completing a 70.3! When you feel like quitting, just think of how awesome crossing that finish line will feel :)
