It gives me that extra sense of accomplishment to see those check marks add up over the days and weeks. Looking at that sheet of paper has also given me a palpable reminder that I have been putting in the hard work necessary to complete a half marathon. When I start to doubt my abilities and start questioning my skills, all I have to do is whip out my tattered sheet of paper and I see the proof there in black and white. I have been putting in the work, I will reap the rewards.
One day at a time, one foot in front of the other (both literally and figuratively) I will make it to the finish!
