1 - Train for a Marathon

“Life is a journey, not a destination.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

You learn a lot about yourself while you train for a marathon. One thing I’ve learnt while training is that I’m one of the most determined person you’ll ever meet and capable of doing anything I put my mind to. You'll challenge yourself  and you will know what your strengths and weaknesses are. Whether you are excited about running in the rain or snow, getting up at 5:15am or you're just not motivated to move. One thing I know for sure is if you 're commited to train for a full marathon, you'll stretch yourself to much greater length as a person with displine & determination.

Do you get up excitedly before the alarm goes off at 5:15am on a rainy Friday morning to go for a 5k run? When you love something so much, you just do it. You go with the flow.

Do you love what you do? If you don't, why are you still doing it?
