Failure and Why it’s ok…

So, i failed at my 2014 running goal.

BIG. TIME.

I was aggressive with them. Was coming off 2 years of running 500 plus miles and needed more of a challenge so I upped it to 700 and threw in 3 half marathons to boot.

To date, I’ve logged 370 miles, all before July. (i know i ran more during what I’ll call my “time with Oprah” but it wasn’t many and it was nowhere near another 330). I’ve done ZERO half marathons this year. (Please note: this is solely b/c I hadn’t signed up for any. Goal setting is easier when you plan it out).

I would say I’m disappointed in myself but I’m not really. 2014 has been a tough year. I lost both of my grandmothers and my dog of 13 years. I got thrown literally into a whirlwind of a tour called Oprah which was the hardest thing professionally I’ve ever tackled.

And I’m sitting here on December 28th in Dubai and I realize…

ITS OK.

It Truly is OK.

And I have so much to be thankful for.

As Oprah says “Everything that happens to YOU, happens FOR you”. So, I’m going with it.

I’ll be setting some new goals in the next few days and encourage you to do the same.
