Pledge of Success

22 02 2010

Today is a new day, a new beginning.

It has been given to me as a new gift.

I can either us it or throw it away.

What I do today will affect me tomorrow.

I cannot blame anyone but myself if I do not succeed.

I promise to use this day to the fullest by giving my best, realizing it can never come back again.

This is my life and I choose to make it a success.


I am not sure who wrote this pledge, but ever since I found it at the end of 2008 I have tried to read it every morning.  I truly believe the words in this pledge and want to share it with all of you!

No Mike, nobody is coaching me at the time being. I am currently following one of Hal Higdon’s marathon training plans though and it is the same one that produced a PR (by over 20 minutes) in my marathon last fall. Thanks for the link to I have never seen this particular site, but there are soo many out there and believe it is a very valuable tool if you want to improve. Cheers!
