#runyourownrace

It''s so easy in races to be caught up with others. If you're slow, you'll fall to the back and often feel like you're on your own, that you need to hurry up .

If you're in the middle of the pack, you often find yourself trying to match someone else's pace; they've run around you for 8 miles, so why are they storming off now? Being nervous and anxious, did they know something I didn't? Was I doing it wrong? .

I started races a few months after I started running 3 years ago, at the grand old age of 32. And I quickly learnt I was often on my own. Whether I came in the middle of the runners, third to last, in the last 100, I seemed to create a pace that didn't peak and trough, but simply plodded. Over and over. People overtook me, but I plodded on. And I always finished. And I always enjoyed the race .

Even with the snow and rain and sleet and no glasses to see 😂 .

So run your own race. Enjoy your own pace. Dont match others around you. What I have learnt is even coming right nearly last, you ran a race. Be proud .

The #roadtoboston is often dark, lonely, and cold. If it sucks, you’re doing it right 😉

We’ve hit the ground running these first few weeks into 2018! Our crew have stepped it up with their quality and efficiency with multiple jobs running over SE QLD. Here we have some images of a structure package we completed for Hutchies Builders on the GC.

“Mama, you got no pants on? Me have pants on.” Loving this warmish weather, and a sleeping kiddo after boycotting his nap for a solid 2 HOURS. Can we fast forward to Spring now?? #aisforactive #runyourownrace #progressnotperfection #runnermom #momswhorun

Disciple...doesn't always feel good in the moment but the reward in the end will be worth It! True inner joy comes from where you're going and knowing why you're going there and who you're going with. 💖

#motivationmonday for this week. One of my biggest struggles (except for that whole swim, bike, run thing) is to not look at what others are doing. I’m constantly reminding myself to focus on my abilities and what I’m doing and run my own race. And most of all, enjoy what I’m doing.
What challenges you the most in our sport? 🏊🏼🚴🏽🏃🏽

Today was a whole new kind of challenging. I got so in my head because I kept feeling behind. I wanted to get my reps in so I was pressing pause and just couldn’t find a flowwww which made me realize something — the S T R U G G L E with the fear of feeling behind. But the only reason I’m going to feel behind 👉🏼 if I’m focusing on the other people, the other ones in the race. I remembered when I ran track why my coaches told me not to ever turn around and look to see who’s behind you or focus on who’s in front of you. JUST stay in YOUR lane. 🤓 Easier said than done right when sometimes it feels like everyone’s blowing by us. Measure YOUR WORTH off your work ethic, your desire, your mission, your power (even in the weak moments) and you will cross the finish line when you’re ready 🙌🏼 I learned a lot from that 60 mins! I hope you can learn a lot from it too. 💕

I N S P I R A T I O N A L 👑💫🖤 Often times we find ourselves in this competition of having to “Make it” right now... Often times we add these added pressures of what success is and what failure is... Often those times are only in our own heads. I could go own... but you get it... #RunYourOWNRace #MyShoesOnlyFeetMYFeet #DreamChaser #GoalDigger #JustAKidFromQueens

Between the flu, crazy weather, getting the house ready and a busy birthday weekend, things in the Horsley house have been BANANAS lately!! The last 2 weeks especially, have been a frantic blur. I’m pretty fired up for things to get back to normal, so putting this out there for everyone to hold me accountable. This week, I’m continuing to pack, keeping the kitchen CLEAN (by far the toughest for me of these), and getting 3 runs in. Don’t think about how crazy last week was, focus on the new one and get some goals out there! Share them here, message me, or tell a friend, but get it out there somehow and it’s more likely to happen! Whatever it is, you’ve got this!! 💪💪 #aisforactive #progressnotperfection #runyourownrace

If you put all your energy toward focusing on achieving your own goals, there will be no time to doubt or compare yourself to others 💯💯💯 #runyourownrace #focus #belief #mindest #showup #visualise #success

Run Your Own Race @lynette_beer “If You Want To You Can”


I think this quote says it all. I’ve done this for so many years and lost myself in the process. It is still a journey for me but I’ve grown so much thanks to the grace of God.

Day 12, 1/21/18 (race day) - Victory at last! This morning, after three previous failed attempts, I have finally successfully run a marathon distance race. The Clearwater Distance Classic is well organized and is a race that I certainly plan to run again. A tremendous thank you to my friends, and to my employer - Nature's Food Patch, who have given me support and encouragement throughout my preparation. Next on the agenda before triathlon season: trails!
