Don't Sweat It!

This is for you..... You pretended the snooze button didn’t exist. 

You dragged your butt out of bed while others slept. While others ate their pancakes you had a feast of protein, glucose and electrolytes. 

You double-knotted. You left the porch light on and locked the door behind you. 

You ran. 5ks, 10ks, 26.2 miles. Some days more, some days less. 

You did pushups.  One or more than one.  Doesn't did pushups.  

You rewarded a long run with a short run. And a short run with a long run. 

You cramped. You bonked. You paid no mind to comfort. On weekends. On holidays.

 You made excuses to keep going. Questioned yourself. Played mind games. Put your heart before your knees. Listened to your breathing. 

Sweat sunscreen into your eyes. Worked on your farmers tan. You hit the wall. You went through it.

You decided to be a man about it. 

Forget that!!  You decided to be a woman about it. Finished what you started. 

Proved what you were made of.  You did it!!  Now get up and do it AGAIN!
