A Matter of Mindset


A coaching client and I were talking about mindset and self-talk. She’s been doing some great work around improving her nutrition and eating habits. I’ve noticed that over time she’s changed her language from I’ve got to lose weight to I’m a healthy person, therefore I eat this way.

That coaching session caused me to examine my own self-talk. I won’t lie. The first three weeks of training following a two year half marathon layoff have been tough. And I realize I’ve been telling myself and others, “I’m trying to get back into half marathons.”

Trying? Trying?

I’m not just trying, I’m doing it.

So beginning today I am changing my language.

I am a half marathoner.
