I Think I Can

Actually I know I can.

I will admit I am still a little intimidated about walking 100km with a bunch of strangers for a cause I didn't even really know existed a year ago. This afternoon, I was in my car, fretting about sharing a tent with a stranger, meeting new people and how to perfectly duct tape my feet to prevent blisters. As I drove to the kick off "Day Zero" meeting I wondered, yet again, what have I gotten myself into-what was I thinking?! Talk about distracted driving.

Then exactly halfway down to the hotel where the meeting was being held, a pretty strong inner voice spoke:

"Um hello!?!? You donated a kidney. You got through that. This is no big deal".

My friend Crystal posted a very timely quote this afternoon on Facebook. "It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not." I am starting to realize that I am a lot more than I give myself credit for. I've accomplished a lot (not just kidney related) and I can do a whole heck of a lot more. It's taken me almost 36 years to realize this and really believe it.

So this 100km should be a piece of cake*.


*My feet do not necessarily endorse this last statement .

    nice line: "It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not."
