You CAN and you WILL!

Lots of people enter marathons and then panic that they can’t do it. Or for some, the reaction of “what are you, mad?!” from other people can lead to self-doubt.

I had a wobble a few weeks ago about my marathons, wondering if I can do them.

But I CAN and I WILL and so can you.

The marathon is a distance to treat with respect. It is a huge physical challenge.

But it’s also mental and if you keep telling yourself you CAN do it, you WILL do it. I told myself this in 2011 when I made my way around the 2011 Brighton Marathon. At mile 18, I realised I was going to make it and not just for that cold pint I’d been promised.

To quote Cathy, “#fakeittillyoumakeit”*

*The hashtag is ironic

Brighton Marathon 2011. If I can do it, you can do it!

Edit: Cathy tells me that she got “fakeittillyoumakeit” from a friend of hers. The post is here – please read it.
