Letter to me to succeed in achieving my sporting goal,
It’s been years that I say to myself that I would like to run a marathon at least once in my life… And then the months pass and I realize that the time when I was running 12 kilometers 2 is farther and farther away. 3 times a week.
I was in royal form then and the more I ran the more I wanted to run.
In all weather, I had to go. I got up very early in the morning to go on the Promenade.
In winter it was dark, I could hear the surf of the sea, sometimes gentle as a murmur, sometimes violent with the waves crashing against the pebbles. And in the summer to see the sunrise on the horizon was a pure delight for the eyes….
Then I would come home to get ready to go to work with a spirit that I no longer have.
That was the Clement from before …
And it will be the Clément of tomorrow… .because I decided to start running again and rediscover the joy and well-being that it gave me.
M My doctor ordered me cardio exams and everything is fine so now “it’s all over” …
So, I decided to resume my jogging regularly every Monday and Thursday then 3 times a week to reach 5 times a week.
To boost myself, I am writing this letter which I will only receive in a year because I know this statement will help me keep my resolutions.
– within 6 to 8 months of doing a half marathon, that of Cannes, that of Nice or even the Marseille-Cassis
– and then within 12 to 18 months of participating in the Côte d’Azur marathon. And I challenge myself to achieve all this before I turn 40.
Since I have always made it a point to keep my commitments, I know this message will help me achieve my goals.
So normally as I read this post, just as this new decade approaches, I can be proud of myself because I have several victories under my belt.
First, the essential: I kept my commitments to myself, which is certainly the most important.
Then I managed to run one and even several half marathons, and I signed up for the French Riviera marathon.
And finally, I find myself with an energy that I no longer thought I had.
And now I fully intend to finish the French Riviera marathon, and also to participate in other marathons: that of Paris, that of Rome and why not that of New York….
