I was a bit cranky last week. Cranky that I didn't get my mileage in for the week, which made me completely doubt that I will ever be able to successfully finish a marathon in 6 months. Funny how warped our minds are...
I was seriously having a super fun pity party for myself which may have included chocolate, when I walked out back to sit on the patio and sulk. That's when I saw this:
A perfectly beautiful purple petunia growing from our brick patio. This was like a face smack from God. Seeing this flower reminded me how something beautiful can come from the most unlikely places. It *shouldn't* be growing from the patio, but because of perfect circumstances ( and hard work on the petunias end...I mean really!), it did.
This was enough for me to suck it up and quit my pity party. I CAN and WILL finish the marathon. Will it be easy? Hell no. The training is going to be hell, I might get injured, I might have to take time off of running for whatever reason. But I CAN do this. Amen.
One of my favorite quotes is: "Forget the reasons why it won't work, and believe the one reason why it will."
