DREAMS

Being a runner has been such a growing process for me. I love it, hate it, cuss it, and bless it all at the same time. At times it may seem to some that running is my life and most of what I think about. This is far from true. It provides me with a release, a time of peace, a time for searching new things within myself. Because of this I crave it, I need it, and I long for it. I am driven by the unknown and embrace the lessons of patience that it continues to teach me. Where I once was insecure within my own dreams and thoughts I am now empowered by the notion of a challenge that most would seem impossible.

This is why I do what I do. I may not be the fastest, fittest, or strongest but I am a woman with dreams and those dreams continue to mold me into to who I am meant to be. I can only hope that by doing and living what I believe in that it might inspire just one person to dream so big that they can to live in a place of true happiness and health.

Thank you Scott! Your support in all that I do is one of the best blessing that a wife could ask for.

To me, striving to turn dreams into reality defines a successfull life. Kinda reminds me of a Pre quote I've seen on Slowtwitch.com:

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift" -Steve Prefontaine

Amen! Very well said. To many people throw away the pursuit of dreams to become "adults," what ever that is. If we had more people living their dreams, I think we would have a better world to live in. Keep the dream alive!
