Many years ago I had told myself that one day I would do the impossible. (For me)
I decided I would climb Mt. Temple in Lake Louise. Of course back then I was in no shape to be climbing and I know a lot of people laughed at me because it was so unrealistic. Really? I was drinking alot (living in Banff as a young adult lol) and I was a heavy smoker. But that year I did it (barely) but I did. I made it to the top and the feeling I got from it was unexplainable. That same year on a trip to Washington I discovered Mt. Rainier. Wow, this was the unattainable mountain but I thought that one day perhaps I would be climbing it.
After having my daughter in 2010 I decided to make it happen. I was about 80lbs overweight but I knew I could only do it if I tried. But mostly I could only do it if I worked hard. I started doing Beachbody TurboJam, P90X and added running. I am not going to lie, I never thought I could make it to the top....but I did. I always imagined that if I got to the summit I would cry of joy and it would be the most wonderful moment ever. Instead, I got to the summit and I had tears, but only because I felt it was over. I had worked so hard for the impossible. I lost 84lbs, I ran a half marathon, a marathon, I climbed and climbed, all that so I could make it to the summit of my dream. Mt. Rainier. And now it was over.
People told me this is very common especially in runners. Not sure but I would like to know what I can do to make it stop! I seen a really interesting article on it here
I was also told to make new goals, but they all seem so ...different....I would love to know if anyone else in this world has felt the same....perhaps I'm just whining too much!
