OMG, I’m running the New York Marathon, 26.2 miles of New York awesomeness. But one thing I haven’t mentioned was, I’m going on my own. I was so nervous before booking, I’ve been abroad before with other people but never ON MY OWN.
I took a deep breath and booked it, yes it was incredibly fearful, the unknown, what will be waiting for me in New York, hopefully a private transfer to my hotel. But I booked it, I faced my fear, now if I take the “FEAR BUBBLE” approach, click here to see my blog on fear, I don’t need to be fearful, I only need to be fearful when I get on the plane, but even then there’s no need to be fearful. For a person with Aspergers, to take on this kind of feat is astonishing, travelling across the other side of the world, but I can do it, I know I can, after all #anythingispossible. Now the fear has gone, I’m feeling excited, ready to tackle the “Big Apple” by myself.
PS If you’re running New York Marathon and have booked with Sports Tours International, get in touch, I’d love to meet when I’m over there!
