My word for 2015: Endurance


At the beginning of each year, I pick a word for the year. Last year, my word was FEARLESS. I tackled a lot of things I never thought I would do. I completed running races up to a half-marathon in 2014. I completed two obstacle course races. I completed a triathlon, and in doing that, I really faced a fear of swimming. I never knew I was afraid of swimming, but I faced it. I did the complete triathlon. I probably won’t ever do another one, but I know I can do it if I have to do it.

For 2015, I have picked the word ENDURANCE. I picked it for many reasons. Life is not easy. There are tough times, and some days you just have to ENDURE and take the next step. I am also running every single day. Most of the time, I run outside, so I have to ENDURE the weather at times. As of today, I have not missed a day of running in 406 days. I have run outside in wind, rain, sleet, snow, heat & humidity, hurricane, and lots of beautiful days. To commit to running outside that much, I need a lot of ENDURANCE. One of my running goals for 2015 was to run a marathon. To run 26.2 miles, ENDURANCE is needed. On January 17, 2015, I ENDURED and completed my first marathon.

There are many reasons why ENDURANCE is my word for the year, and each day, I discover more reasons.
