I have the rest of my life to start businesses and nonprofits.

I can only run at a high level for a limited window.

So I’m going to focus on running for another year or two.

I’ve already been doing it for about a year now.

I’m going to stay all in and continue dedicating my life to it.

I’ve already come this far.

Running goals:

5K – break 15:00

10K – break 31:00

Half marathon – break 1:10

Marathon – break 2:30

These are realistic and doable.

I believe I can do better than this, but these are the next steps.

Maybe I’ll even take a crack at an Olympic qualifying time.

Dream big. Why not?

Part-time work makes the most sense while I chase my dreams.

I don’t have a sponsor.

To me it’s a worthy pursuit.

I’m going to push myself and see what I’m capable of.

I’m not giving up on my professional life.

I’m still going to work on it.

It’s just not my main priority.

I’m just delaying it.

If I have to work a couple extra years when I’m older, so be it.

I don’t even know if I’ll be around in 30 years.

One day I’ll have to retire the running shoes.

But that day is not today.

One day my priorities will change.

But that day is not today.

I don’t want to regret not going for it.

I’ve gotten started.

I’m getting better.

If you’re looking for me over the next year or two, you can find me on the streets.

I’ll be running my heart out.

Because “I wanna go fast.”
