Running a half marathon was a personal challenge that I had for many years. I was always amazed by people who were able to run non-stop so many kilometers and keep a good pace along the way. However, some other activities became a priority when I arrived in Australia (April 2018).
During the lockdown in Sydney in 2021, having gyms and other indoor sports facilities closed, I decided to challenge myself and start running outdoors. It was a bit hard to get used to the routines as my legs and feet were usually sore after running; however, having a clear goal in mind and the willingness to try something new were my main motivations to don’t give up.
On December 12th, 2021, I was part of the Nike Half Marathon that took place in Melbourne. I managed to get to the finish line and my happy face in the picture says it all.
As a life coach and career counselor I can confirm, once again, the main aspects to consider when embarking on a personal project:
- Set your goal
- Design a suitable plan that helps you achieve your goal
- Surround yourself with people who will help you along the journey
- Be consistent with your plan
- Always smile
