Goals are dreams with deadlines. Stop dreaming! I took control of my life and with the help of many wonderful people I was able to lose 135 pounds in 11 months. Set a goal, tell everyone who will listen, and stick to your plan. You can do it!!
I will try to remember this during some of my long distance races coming up when my body is asking to curl up on the side of the trail in fetal position.
What, you have already done two 100s right? You haven't gotten to the invincible stage yet? I mean, the point where nothing except serious injury could crack your mental toughness. Maybe I should take a lesson from you and run as Nacho to keep things loose!!
