March Madness - Day 9

Consistency is key!

One of the things I was challenged to do this month is to run one mile per day.

Just to be clear, the goal is NOT to run 31 miles this month. The goal is NOT to increase the distance each day, or even each week. The goal is NOT to run as fast as I can.

The goal is to be CONSISTENT!!!

That's what happens when we create a habit. We are consistent.

When we are consistent with certain things in our lives, we experience growth like never before.

What is something that you started but then stopped?

What is a goal you had but changed it to make it easier to achieve?

It's time to finish what you started and to get to your goal.

Nothing worth having comes easy. WORK for the things you want.

Stay the course even when you don't want to.

Be persistently CONSISTENT!!!

You've been challenged!

What will you choose to be consistent with?

  1. This is crazy because everyday in my debriefing I say I need to be more CONSISTENT. I am confident in some areas but others I feel like I am BIG kids back on 7th grade in a new school, new surrounding, and trying to find my way around (despite the fact that I see these same people EVERYDAY (what I was consistent with was no more because of my new surroundings). I had to be honest with myself that I BORE easily, I need a Challenge daily (it's really more than that), I NEED to see results NOW (but I am not always really willing to do what it takes to get there), I want to "Be persistently CONSISTENT" but I need to GROW in this area.

  2. Thank you for your honesty. As you work at be persistently CONSISTENT, remember to start small. Be consistent will small things. You don't have to try to change the world in one swoop. Small, steady steps will take you where you want to be.

Happy New Year! I can hardly believe that we are at the top of 2019. That means we made it to another year. One of the things that I do at the end of every calendar year, or at the very, very, very beginning of a brand new calendar year, is take some time to reflect. As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
