As you know earlier this year, I joined the gym. What you may not know is that I fail miserably at the gym. At least at the part that was supposed to help me train for the Monument Avenue 10K. I can't stand running on a treadmill. Everytime I ran outside, my calf cramped up, my knee would hurt and my foot would go numb. Not a good recipe for beating my time from last year.
My sister, Dani, was also training for a half marathon. So she was out running 10 miles at a time and I was struggling to run 10 minutes. On the morning of April 13, 2013, my goal was simply to finish the race. I gave up on my sub-65, beat-my-time-from-last-year. I just wanted to finish the race which seemed impossible.

Are you ready to know how it ended? Are you sure you're ready?
I RAN 6 MINUTES AND 20 SECONDS FASTER THAN LAST YEAR! (63:21)

I'm still ecstatic I'm looking at sub-60 for next year; if I can get off my lazy butt! :)
Tell me about a time that you accomplished a goal that you thought was impossible.
