Pope John XXIII says:
Consult NOT your fears but your HOPES and your DREAMS.
Think NOT about your frustrations, but about YOUR unfilled potential.
Concern yourself NOT with what you tried and failed, but WITH what is still possible for you to do.
It makes a lot of sense. It’s exactly the mind-set we need now. We get the chance to think a lot when we run longer distances. It pays to pre-occupy the mind with positive things. Negativity is a big no no. Rather than dig deep and stay in the past it is wiser to look forward to the future, taking good note of the lessons learned. As they say – “who knows what tomorrow brings?”
Here’s something new to try out: JOIN and run in the World Youth Day FUN Run.
Picture this. You get to run at a very reasonable price. You get to sweat out your passion. You get to be a part of those who have helped send delegates to the World Youth Day. You might even get a PR or a new PB. Either way, you’d celebrate. What better way to do that by attending the Holy Mass after! Never have I been to any run or race that offers this kind of a “celebration”! 🙂
Here’s the concrete why:
