CRAAAP!! I just signed up for @ultimateathleticsuae Race Night 😬 Swipe Right ➡️
I’ve been toying with the idea of actually competing in something I love doing, but all the negative thoughts have been popping in and out of my mind..... ‘am I too old’, ‘what if I’m so slow compared to everyone else’ and then I accidentally let slip to the eldest cub that I HADN’T actually signed up (even though I’d been talking about it for a while) and he asked ‘why’? I told him the truth, that my fear of losing was what was holding me back and he said..... ‘Mum, not taking part because of fear of losing is worst than losing itself’ 😳
What the actual f*%k?! I’m pretty sure somewhere down the line I have probably said something similar to this to my cubs, but hold on sonny boy, you ain’t supposed to use that against me 😣
BUT...he’s right, and I’m a fraud and a hypocrite if I don’t follow my own advice 🤦🏽♀️ So, not wanting to be guilted by my own child 🤨 I will be running the 400m next Thursday!
