Fitness Friday: The 4 Minute Mile

About a month ago, I found out about a great running movie called, 4 Minute Mile.

Ever hear of it?

It's an inspirational movie about a high school track star who struggles to stay focused when he has to deal with family problems. His resolve to achieve his dreams are within reach with the help of the right coach until a tragedy threatens to impede his goals.

I won't tell you how it ends. You'll have to watch it for yourself to find out if he can run a four minute mile.

This movie has a great message about barriers. Personal barriers. The things that hold us back from what we want to achieve. It got me thinking about the barriers in my own life. The fears. My fear of failure, judgement, the unknown, change. While I would like to think (and tell others) that I can get past my barriers, my fears, all on my own…it wouldn't be true. I have been able to chase my dreams and reach my goals because of the coaches in my life. 

On this Valentine's Day eve, I would like to say thanks to my favorite "coach", mrC. Without you, I would have never run a half marathon (let alone 12!), tried SUP, or started this blog. Thank you for all of your encouragement and for believing in me. 

Who is your COACH?
