Perfectionism – otherwise known as my ultimate struggle in life.
I get it. We live in the golden age of technology. We are lucky to have phones that have cameras, and access to the internet, and instant communication. I’m amazed by and in awe of technology. It is a gift.
But for me, it can also be a curse.
When I tell people I’m attempting to run a marathon, I usually get the same reaction: “WHY?”
It’s not easy to articulate. There are many reasons, and not all of them are rational. Bucket list? Yes. Health benefits? Yeah. Cheaper than a gym? God yes.
But the biggest motivator for me to run this marathon is simple.
It’s my dad.
You know that saying, “It takes a village?” Yeah, I never really bought into that idea.
