This weekend was a reminder of why I love running. I have been sidelined with an injury and have not been running (or working out at all) much. The injury and life have been overwhelming me. This weekend changed all that. I am a GOTR coach and this weekend was race weekend. Feeling the energy, seeing the girls excitement and watching them cross the finish line? Nothing short of AMAZING!
Sunday was the turkey trot that started my running journey over 14 years ago. It was a reminder of not only why I run but why I love the running community, why I love running, and why I wear a tutu! I am not fast but I am fun….so I want to remind others to have fun too!
Believe. To look within, to overcome. Loving myself enough. I have the will, the determination and the courage to defy the odds…and inspire. My challenges have made me a fighter – a survivor. They will not define me or confine me. I will run my own race. Different, beautiful and all my own. I believe in me and my potential. And I’m going to succeed because I’m brave enough to think I can.
