Believe it or not, I ran a 10K. Okay, I lied. I briskly walked it… I got a medal and crossed the finish line. It’s my first 10K so technically, I PR’d. I did the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC. It’s the 3rd largest 10K in the United States, too!

I’ve been never a runner and I have zero aspirations to become one.

On top of this 10K, I’m doing a Rugged Maniac (dressed as Guy Fieri!) I’m looking forward to yelling, “Flavortown!” throughout it. Also, my biggest fear has always been to marry into a family that does a Thanksgiving Day 5K— and I signed up for one of those, too.

So apparently I’m a run/walker now.

We’re capable of more than we give ourselves credit for

I never saw myself running a 10K. To even accomplish it and cross this off my life felt like a big deal. And this can be something like moving across the country, going away to college, etc.

The journey is more important than crossing the finish line

Of course crossing the finish line was a big deal, but the memories along the way made the day truly special.

It reminds me of my road trip and honestly just life.

You can go 100 MPH cross-country, never stopping and you’ll get to your destination. Or you can stop along the way and try every town’s “World’s Best Pie”. If you’re only focused on the final destination, you’ll miss so much.

Just go and do it

If you’re never going out of your comfort zone, you will miss so much. You have to trust your instincts.

Take the classes, study abroad, join the organizations that interest you (not your friends!) In 10 years, you’ll look back at memories. Who cares what Suzie in your sorority thinks about the clubs that interest you? She’s focused on herself, not you!

So do what inspires you. Sign up for what interests you. Just do you, boo.

tl;dr if I can finish a 10K, you’re more than capable of doing whatever is on your heart.
