I hate running. On January 10th, I decided to register for a half-marathon on March 4th. Makes sense, right?
Before you think I’m crazy or that I have SM tendencies, let me explain.
Every day I hear some version of “I can’t do that, it’s just too hard”. It’s probably true, it’s hard to find a work/life balance, it’s hard to find the time to get a side project off the ground, it’s also hard to stay in shape.
But is it really that hard or are we just kidding ourselves?
We know the hardest things are the ones worth doing. They’re the ones bringing the most value. Are they really too damn hard or are we just lacking self-confidence in our ability to get them done?
So I tried, as an experiment. I challenged myself to do something I consider hard.
Since I hate running, I registered for a half-marathon.
