Touch down Barcelona

For the Fit Girls who are following me on Instagram or on my personal blog…You probably already read some about my Barcelona travel (#RUNNINGMYOWNRACE). For the ones who haven’t read anything yet, It’s worth reading it even when you don’t like to run 😉

Bucket list
I always make crazy bucket lists at the end of the year. Last year, I promised myself to make a trip all by myself. Something I had never done before which really excited me. Yes, even though I am super busy, dreams about traveling are always in the back of my mind.

Anyway, a few weeks ago on an ordinary Thursday, I finally booked my ticket! I was so excited and scared at the same time. Why should I do this anyway?! A week before I left, I thought it was fun (seriously!) to also run a half marathon again (like I did in 2013 ‘Mitja Marato’). Ok, don’t ask me why but I think I was just scared to have nothing on my travel schedule. LOL

#RUNNINGMYOWNRACE

 

Unexpected things can be the best things right? I was totally hyper because of my crazy idea. I wanted to inspire my members and all followers to run their own race. NO. Not a half marathon. But whatever you want to accomplish in life. There is no date needed to start and definitely no finish line. It’s all about going at your own pace.

It’s the process during your race what makes you stronger, smarter and run better. Therefore I only told a few people about my half marathon goal. I don’t know if I will be content with 5k, 10k with 21k in my mind but I felt no pressure.

Smile
Life is so beautiful and gives you a lot of energy when you just dare to step out of your comfort zone. I like to tick a few boxes at the same time, so I thought it was perfect to tick a few of my travel, bucketlist and runningmyownrace boxes. If you had asked me 10 years ago if I ever will do something like this? I think I would have laughed so hard and would have said friendly, ah no, not for me.

So? Are you ready to #runyourownrace? What’s on your mind right now? What would you like to accomplish? I just proved you and your excuses that even the things who might not be realistic, still can come true.

Look at yourself in the mirror, smile and tell yourself to go for it. You will be amazed by the outcome. I would love it to see your bucketlist and upcoming travel trips. For more inspiration of my bucketlist travel find them via instagram aliciasofia_fgc or via nextlevel-lifestyel.nl.
