I hadn't run since I was 18 until I hired a cycling coach who happened to be a triathlon coach.
When I first started running, I did it for one minute at a time and my heart rate would go up to 180 so I had to walk for three minutes and then run and walk.
Eventually I came in second in my age group in 5Ks.
Then I did a seven mile run in 11 minutes per mile, which I thought was really good for me at 55.
And then I did a 5k in under 30 minutes.
Every single limit is in our mind, but the reality is, we can do anything.
Remember, anything we're doing is worth sucking at it first. We're not born excellent at anything.
And so it's so important to just practice and give ourselves some grace.
It's never too late and you can do anything when you put your mind to it.
In today's episode of The Launch Your Life Podcast, I'm with J.M. Phillips who is an author and retired Occupational Therapist.
When she became motivated by the retelling of family stories, she wrote Lamlash Street which is a book about navigating family life in London.
During the podcast, we talk about the mindset shifts J.M. had to make in order to overcome her personal obstacles, to writing a book and how you can start to take action toward your passion right now.
