Courage/ Strength

Training for my first 5k

Running for the first time

Building stamina

Fighting the fear


Growing through the process

Becoming more confident

Gaining strength

Facing the challenges


Like many things in life

I was afraid

Of being embarrassed

Of failing


It is a personal thing

Working to achieve a goal

As part of my training

I adopted a mantra


Read in a book about running

I wrote the initials daily

On the inside of my wrist

It sticks with me still


EAMOF-Excuses Are Made of Fear
