The first step…
Whether running, tackling your least favorite chore, or chasing a big scary goal, the first step is usually the hardest. So here I am, staring at my computer screen (again), putting way too much pressure on myself to make my first Maui Running Company blog post flawless. What will I say to capture all of the emotions over the last 11 months? How can I engage with my readers, yes every single reader, in this magical first post? How can I best share my excitement, hopes and dreams for Maui Running Company and the Maui running community in a quick two minute read?
After having “Write First Blog Post” at the top of my to-do list for far too many weeks, I’ve finally realized that I can’t write that perfect first post. There are no words that can accurately describe all of the emotions since I moved back to Maui in October 2016. A single post could never do them justice.
But what I can write is how I’m feeling at this exact moment: I am excited, nervous as heck, feeling vulnerable but ultimately so hopeful and grateful to have created this space to grow and see what lies ahead. The simple fact that you are reading this is a positive sign. One of many signs I’ve received since launching Maui Running Company that what I’m doing is meaningful and will have the positive impact on the community.
So I’m going to keep this short and sweet. More than anything, mahalo. Thank you for joining me on this journey. There first step is done and here’s to the adventure ahead!
