Honor Your True Self

"Tell her..."

I want to cross the finish line substantially under 3 hours; 12 minute miles would be awesome for a finish time a little over 2.5 hours. Right now I am not on track to make this goal. I am not eating as if I was training for a half marathon. I am eating as if I will never again have a chance to eat high calorie, nutritionally deficient food. I am eating as if there is no other way to relax at the end of the day, stave off boredom, or jump start my brain. I've done a 1/2 before. The something I've never done before is really lived a balanced life in harmony with myself. Life is fluid. I can't be rigid, but I must honor my true self. I know my true self, but it's easy for me to turn my back on her and pretend I can't hear her. 

So for today, I will honor my true self. I will give my run everything I am able. I will take the time to fuel my body with foods I truly enjoy. I will slow down and appreciate all that I have in my life.
