So much of life is spent not on the actual event, but in preparation for the event.
Yesterday I logged my last three training miles for the half marathon coming up on Saturday, bringing my total training miles to 233 for this race. While I’m not completely prepared in every way, I did put in some effort!
We plan birthday parties. The cake. The presents. We decide in advance where to have the party and what activities to do.
Babies are often planned. A date to coincide with vacation time or insurance policies is sometimes critical to this plan. The age of the parents and status of careers can play a role.
Our housing needs are calculated and our car payments are measured. The budget is prepared and the plan is decided.
When I look back at the 233 miles now, honestly, it seems a bit massive.
But I didn’t run them all in one day…or one week…or one month.
It was a process.
Simply broken down:
one step at a time.
What event or goal are you anticipating that needs to be taken one step at a time?
