Feel the fear and do it anyway…

I’m so freckin’ scared right now. The whole world is at a stand still and all I want to do is curl up in my bed and cry my fears away… Going through my morning routine has been full of tears and more fear… I know what to do, I’m just scared i can’t physically do it. I know I’m not properly prepared and I should have worked harder. I know I missed more workouts over the past 4 months than I should have. I know my body is in the worst shape it’s been in in a year. I feel less prepared than I did for my 50 last year and now I have to go out and double that distance… But I know my heart is strong. When I finish Buffalo Run, it will not be because of my physical abilities. It is ALL my mind. I know I can endure more pain than most people. I know I can force myself to keep going when my body is weak. I know I can endure and persist to accomplish my goals. 

My heart and my mind will carry my body when my limbs are too weak.

It’s going to hurt bit only for 30 hours. If you quit, the pain will last forever.

Run Epic my Friends!
