When i first heard the phrase “dream it, believe it, achieve it!”, i thought, what a load of bullshit!
For me though, it’s not bullshit, it came true on Sunday 18th October at around 12:15 in the afternoon.
That was the time i finished the Great Birmingham Run. My first ever half marathon.
Back in June i dreamt about running a half marathon, even though i had not run for over 30 years. So i had a lot of fears.
By July i had a training schedule and i started to believe it.
On the saturday night before the race, i was a bag of nerves and couldn’t get much sleep. I thought to myself wouldn’t it be amazing and inspirational if i could run in 1 hr 45 minutes?
Sunday at 12.15pm, i achieved that, give or take a few seconds.
If i can do it, you can too.
