Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve at least heard of Facebook executive, Sheryl Sandberg and her book, Lean In. Sandberg wrote the book to encourage women to pursue their ambitions, and to change the conversation from what we can’t do to what we can do. Sure, sexism exists. Whether we like it or not, men, in large part, still rule the world. However, using that as an excuse to abandon ambition will get us nowhere. Instead, assume you can reach your goals and act accordingly.
Leaning in gives us permission (as if we really need it) to imagine what we would do if we were not afraid of running into glass ceilings and to find ways to get us to our goals.
This can so easily apply to our running.
