It’s Wednesday so I’m linking up with Debbie again for her Wednesday Word link up! Click the button below to see who else is linking up and to join in.
This week’s word is ambitious. Running is an ambitious thing. In running you are focused on achieving a goal – be it a specific workout or a race. Having ambition means you have a desire to achieve a certain objective.
I have had many ambitions since I started running. I wanted to complete a half marathon, then I wanted to run sub-2 (I came close, at 2:01:00), then I wanted to improve my 5K time, then I focused on full marathons. Honestly, I don’t really know where I’m at with my running right now. I had a great time doing a trail series this past spring and I still really like trails and want to explore them more. At some point I know I am going to tackle the 50K distance and I am pretty sure I know what my first 50K will be….
I have other ambitions with running, too. They are definitely nowhere near my immediate future, but I do hope to accomplish some very scary goals.
Some day I would like to tackle a 50 miler and my greatest (and scariest) ambition is to run a 100 miler!
What are your greatest ambitions?
