Don’t let the fear of not being “good enough” hold you back from achieving your goals!
Right now my body is still in recovery mode. The mud, sweat, and tears were totally worth that finishers medal (and the finishers beer!). YES, I’m proud of myself for physically finishing 13.1 miles. But mostly I’m proud of the fact that I mentally and psychologically could handle it. Postpartum baby number one and two, I could never have convinced myself to start, let alone finish. But this time my anxiety stayed far from that start and finish line.
That alone was worth the medal. So I’m going to consider this my freaking postpartum medal. And I goddamn earned it!
