You have to forget

I've decided to run another marathon. This time my friend Jessie is my partner in crime. I am SO excited about this. I love Jessie. I love talking to her. I love the perspective she brings to things. I love that I don't have to make sense when I talk to her. I love that I can be honest and real around her.
All that to say, I am excited to get to spend countless hours training with her. We won't be talking the entire time we train (insert miles 19+ here), but I'm excited to get to spend time together.

So the marathon. Again. 26.2 miles. Again. That wall that doesn't leave. Again. Hours and hours of training. Again. The most difficult thing I've ever done. Again.
I've heard that "you have to forget running your last marathon before doing another." I believe it.

I think that applies to a lot of things in life.
You have to forget how much it hurt.
You have to forget how hard something was before you're ready to try again.
You have to forget how things didn't turn out like you hoped and expected.
You have to forget how you thought things were "supposed" to be.
You have to forget certain dreams.
You have to forget how things were.
You have to forget what things were like the last time. Or the first time. 

Forget how much it hurts and try again.
I'm working on forgetting.

I saw this on Pinterest a couple times...
Simple form: God's plans > my dreams. Always. Thank goodness.
Happy weekend!
