You can do it – put your all into it.

June 27, 2015

I never thought I would run a half-marathon.  Until a couple months ago, I never expected that I would want to or that I would be able to.  I often still think of myself as the girl who only got C+’s in PE class and walked the whole distance during school-organized runs.  Completing the ScotiaHalf was meaningful to me not because of the outcomes of the “race”, but because it reminds me that I can do anything I put my heart and mind to, and–more importantly–that I can do it on my own.

I think… the girl who dreaded studying–or simply being– without her boyfriend (physically, via text, or on webcam) throughout university days has come a long long way.  Over five years since I broke up with SC to achieve this feeling of being effectively self-sufficient, I think I can finally confidently say… I am doing it, and will keep doing it.

I’m going to need this reminder as I head into the train wreck that will be my last semester at UVIC next week.
