We’re only in our prime once.

Within the past year, I’ve become obsessed with running.

The timing is good because I believe I’m entering my running prime.

In a way I’ve been selfish.

I’ve been dedicating a lot of my time, attention, energy, and focus to training.

I can’t stop thinking about it and talking about it. I wake up at night thinking about it.

My heart wants it. I’m listening to it. I’m giving my heart what it wants. I will not betray my heart.

I’m only in my running prime once.

I’m going to make the most of it and see what I’m capable of. I’m going to see how good I can be and how far I can go.

I’m going to get it all out of myself. I’m going to do it while I’m able.

I’m going hard.

Work will always be there. The best years of my life will come and go.

I know I’d regret not giving it a go. I won’t live with “what if” and “should have” hovering over me.

I know I’ll learn from it and be better for it.

One day I’ll be able to share what I experienced and learned. I’ll be a better teacher and coach.

Sometimes you only have a small window of opportunity. Sometimes you only get one crack at it.

What will you do when your time comes?

Will you seize the moment and take advantage of it? Or will you squander it and let it pass?

This is my time. I’m going for it. This is my dream. I’m living it.
