Why is it when I tell someone I'm training for an Olympic Tri that some people reply with:
“how are you going to do that?”“that will probably be your first and last”
“are you crazy”
The crazy one, I can deal with, I sometimes ask myself that same thing. The thing is, two years ago if you asked me if I would be training for this I probably would of said, you are crazy. I have changed my lifestyle, I'm going to the gym, I'm trying to be fit, and I'm hoping to motivate people along the way.
Why can't people be happy for you? How come they can't reply like I have to others bloggers with:
“you can do it girl”
“I'm so proud of you”
My sister, Wendy, just started back running again and we text, or talk, or sometimes both everyday and our comments to each other are always upbeat, motivating to each other, pushing each other. Everyone needs someone like my sister in their life to help them through. It's so easy to give up when you feel like you can't do it. I LOVE YOU SISTER!!! :)
The purpose of this post today is to tell anyone who may be doubting themselves or hear these hateful comments coming out of those ugly peoples mouths, You Can Do It!! Trust me, I weighed 200 lbs at my heaviest, when I started running I couldn't even run a tenth of a mile. It's true, the trail I would run was marked at every tenth of a mile. I couldn't even run the first tenth, and I just completed my first half marathon and did it sub 2 hours. You can do anything you make a commitment and follow through with. So to all you haters out there, your comments just push us to do even better, to try even harder, and to finish even faster!! THANKS!!!!
And on a even more positive note, you know that UK game that me and my man went to this weekend. We made it BIG! I mean, BIG time. Apparently we don't just go to watch the UK game, we like to make out to!!
This is posted on the Kentucky Sports Radio website......Love it!!
So does this happen to anyone?
How do you reply besides saying kiss my a*s??
