Achieve The Goal Avoid The Guilt

Fitmark Ambassador Amanda Tamburello encourages you to conquer the smallest of goals you set to avoid any guilt that would follow if you gave up on it

In the last three weeks, I have put over 4,000 miles on my car, spent countless hours working at the racetrack, a extra income side job, working out and if not doing that, I am sleeping. This leaves little time for friends, family and life!  But, our lives are what we make of them right?

I ran a 5K a few months ago and surprising to me, I finished first in my division. I was so elated with the results, that I took on the goal of a Half Marathon. At the time I decided  on this challenge, my schedule allowed me plenty of time and energy to train for this goal, and achieve it in a competitive result. But, as my ever-changing Jockey life moves on, my schedule has now handed me limited time and a question to my devotion of this personal statement.

I struggle with the goal, as I struggle with the training, but overall…. I know that the disappointment and guilt of not trying the Half Marathon, would be greater than failing in my attempt.

And that my friends, is what life is…. the ever-changing, constant challenge of  the enticement to fall victim to our circumstances. I will rise to the challenge…. no matter what time I finish. A close friend of mine gave me the idea, that even if I finish after the pomp and circumstance of the event, I should recreate the joyful victory for a picture.  If that is the case, I hope he is there to take my picture!

Stay fit,
