|Health On The Run & I Running Side By Side – LOVE IT|
As a girl in her 20′s I have often found myself regretting decisions I have made, things I have said. I am not sure there is a person in this world that has not at one time or another felt this way.
In 2011 I found peace.
I started to realize that all the wrong turns I made in life were the right ones. I am exactly where I am today because of the things I did and said, good and bad.
I was not a runner growing up. I did not run cross country or track in high school. I am what I would consider a late bloomer. At times I have wondered what my life would be like if I had been active as a child or if I had been pushed to do sports from a young age. I felt sad that I spent a good portion of my childhood reading, my high school years feeling shy and inadequate, and my college years being a mess [literally and figuratively].
I’m not sad anymore. All the experiences of my life have made me who I am today. People ask me how I find time to train with three little kids. I don’t find time I MAKE TIME. I push myself because I know I do not like life with out running. I like challenging myself. I love pushing myself harder than I thought possible. I like DREAMING BIG and then breaking through those dreams and coming up with new ones.
Every mile I run gets me closer to who I want to be……
I do not regret anything in my life. Yes there are plenty of things I wish I did differently – but who knows maybe I wouldn’t be a marathoner if I had.
Riding my marathon high for as long as I can….
Have I told you lately how much I love running?
Do you have regrets? Or do you know inside you are who you are because of all the right and wrong decisions you have made?
