Meet Brandy M. Brandy just ran the longest distance of her life (without stopping) all thanks to Fit Radio. Here is her story:
“I did it! I officially ran the longest distance I ever have before (without) stopping! Just did a 10k (6.2 miles) and finished in about an hour at a 10.5 minute mile, which I am extremely happy with! My “personal record” had nothing to do with time, it was simply to FINISH, ideally without stopping, which I DID!!! The Texas heat is no joke in the middle of the afternoon. It was HOT, I was tired and I already worked out at did weights at the gym this morning.
BUT I bought this beautiful diamond finishers medal to do a “virtual run” with some of my ADPi sisters who live in different places. I told myself I would run a 10k for the medal before my 15k next weekend, so today was the day that it was NOW OR NEVER! (I even had the willpower to not open the medal package until I finished my run!)
The trail was really empty today so it made it MUCH HARDER to run and at the halfway point I was TIRED! I knew that I could stop and walk because no one would know but me… But I wanted to prove to myself that I could do this run, alone, without stopping. Talk about SELF MOTIVATION & DISCIPLINE!
Although my body was tired I knew it was MIND that I had to convince to keep going so I kept telling myself “This is so easy”, “You’ve got this girl”, “Be proud of yourself”, “Keep going”, “You’re almost there”… Positive self talk really helped and I have my yoga practice to thank for that.
Just know that if you want to do something, YOU CAN DO IT. I was not a runner before I took on this challenge, but I was determined & motivated… That’s what it takes. Set new goals, determine how to achieve them & then take action to make your goals turn into accomplishments! I couldn’t have done it without Fit Radio!”
