In a couple minutes I will be submitting my first article for RUN SOUTH FLORIDA MAGAZINE. I've spent most of the day editing, proofing, and re-reading this first piece. Every time I thought I was done, or got it right, I would find something else that I thought I would want to add or take out. Well into the 7th and 8th drafts I started to wonder if I would ever get it "PERFECT".
We always allow doubt to creep in and make us feel like we aren't ready to race, we should have done more, we should have maybe kept that line in and take out the other two, but I know all that's left for me do is trust my writing (training),...TAKE A DEEP BREATH and have that mouse hover over the SEND button.
With the same courage that it takes to shake out nerves at the starting line, and the same tenacity it takes to block out the voices that try to intimidate our hearts while we race, I'm going to submit this piece. I only hope that all of these feelings go away as soon as the GUN GOES OFF and this article starts traveling into the CYBERWORLD.
Here goes nothing....
