3 years ago when I started running, I never thought I would get fast; never thought I would progress. But here I sit, 3 days after my second half-marathon, having just finished a run where I ran the second mile at what I once thought was an impossible, unattainable pace.
But, with persistence, hard work, sweat, and even some tears, I've made it to this point; a point I never thought I'd reach. So, to those of you out there who think things are impossible, who think you will never progress or will never reach a certain goal, keep trying. You will get there. The path may be long, twisted, hard, painful, and scary, but keep at it, keep striving, keep dreaming. You'll get there.
