Time is Running Out

"People's beliefs about the their abilities have a profound effect on those abilities." - Albert Bandura [Psychologist]

I better get working on this concept today as there are only 10 days till the Eugene Marathon.
Instead of victory, ambiguous thoughts fill my head. "I've never run a race this length [half-marathon] before." "Why did I enter this event?" " I've been running for over 20 years and still mediocre." "Have I set myself up for failure?"  
Yeah, it takes a lot of energy to be a pessimist.

Thanks Dawn for these words from experience; "Most races no matter the distance are mental. Just keep thinking you can do it and YOU WILL."
