¡Esto no es para mí!

¿Cuántas veces dijeron “esto no es para mí”?

La primera vez que salí a correr, hice cuatro cuadras y dije… “Esto no es para mí”. Me volví caminando, me tire en un sillón y me prendí un cigarrillo totalmente convencida de que nunca más iba a intentarlo.

¿No me creen? ¡Les juro que es como les cuento!¿Cómo hice para cambiar? Todavía no lo sé, ja,ja… En realidad si sé, y se los voy a contar…

Se empezaron a organizar las primeras carreras combinadas con windsurf, bici y correr. Como yo era una de las poquísimas mujeres que navegaba, allá por los años 80, competía en windsurf y me divertía mucho hacerlo, todos me invitaban a participar. El problema era que yo no corría y tampoco sabía andar en bici con cambios. Fue ahí cuando empecé a pensar que tal vez, no le había dedicado el tiempo necesario a dichas actividades. Entonces decidí volver a intentarlo.

Empecé a correr y cada día trataba de llegar un poquito más lejos. ¡De pronto, un día, corrí 5 kilómetros sin parar! ¡Que emoción! ¡¡¡Estaba feliz!!! Después me puse más exigente… Quise bajar mis tiempos, correr más kilómetros. Pero lo más importante, fue que me di cuenta que me sentía bárbaro después de hacerlo. Durante el día tenía más energía, y si tenía un problema y salía a correr, después, lo podía ver de otra manera. Lo mismo me paso con la bici. Nací en Congreso, donde viví hasta los 15 años y no tenía mucha experiencia sobre una bicicleta. Aprender a andar en ruta y poner los cambios, me llevo su tiempo. ¡¡Pero aprendí que con perseverancia todo se logra!!

Así fue como pude correr las carreras organizadas por las guarderías del bajo. Desde ese momento, como ustedes sabrán, no pare más!!

Por eso siempre digo, que nunca hay que decir “esto no es para mí”, sin siquiera haberlo probado.

Más de una vez pensé… ¿Cuántas cosas me hubiera perdido de hacer, si me hubiese dejado llevar por esta frase?
