Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t just sign up and think that was going to make me a runner. I had developed a plan to prepare for it and with my plan I fully expected that I would in fact run a 5K on Thanksgiving Day. It’s been three weeks and I’ve been using the Couch to 5K app to help me train. Ironically, the very thing that I struggled with in the past—running—I now am starting to crave. Yes, if I go more than three days without running, I really start to feel sluggish. It’s amazing to think that the fears that kept me from running really hid something that I needed and I am really beginning to love it more and more. What is exciting in that is that my fears no longer are sabotaging my ability to flourish. I’ve realized, “When I’m just being myself—it’s good enough to be great! God made me a certain way and I just gotta be that!” —Brian Buffini
