Winter warrior 2016

I found it!! I bought myself this shirt a while ago and it is true. I like how running makes me feel and I like the high I get. I'm a little hooked but it ebbs and flows on my schedule. 
I was all about challenges and goals last year and did accomplish a few and should be proud of myself. I cut 9 minutes off my Road Race time and I wasn't even running regularly. I ran the 10 miler under 2 hours and beat my projected time by almost 10 minutes. 
So why was I so wishy-washy about this challenge? I'm not sure. 
Fear of failure? Really chick?!?! 
That's ridiculous because you tried and that deserves credit plus if you don't even try you never have the chance to SUCCEED! 
The Warrior challenge says you need to walk or run outside everyday in January for a minimum of 1 mile. My dog bog walk is 1.2 miles so at a minimum I need to do that but I want to run as much as possible. Today as I type this I think-that is easy. I can totally do this. 
Today I had a posse with me and we stopped so kids and dog could roll in the sand and play catch. No one said it had to be a boring mile right? 
I have to remember I can do anything I don't allow my own fear to prevent me from doing.
