you never know who you are inspiring ...

I want to thank everyone who reached out and left a kind note in my inbox, a comment on a blog, a text, a phone call etc. I don't write my blog for attention. I write my blog to create awareness. I write my blog to keep all my thoughts in one place for myself so when I need the motivation, I know exactly where to go. I write my blog for others to read hoping I motivate or inspire someone to reach for that goal they have in the back of their mind but are scared to go for. If you have a dream or a goal, GO FOR IT! The only person stopping you from achieving it, is yourself. I never in a million years thought I could run or that I would love it the way that I do today. Look at me now.

Success is the result of clear goals, unshakable confidence, proper planning, enthusiastic action and consistent persistence

Here are a few of my facebook posts from the past two years  followed by an amazing note I received yesterday that has left me completely speechless, emotional and full of tears. I love you H. Go for your goal. YOU can do it! I will forever be (one of) your biggest cheerleader. <3

Today I celebrate my 1 yr anniversary of running. 3 half marathons and 25+ races...looking forward to another great season. Never say never!

Yesterday, I completed my 5th half marathon. Each race this past year has been special in its own way. I usually dedicate a mile or two to someone to help me get thru when the running gets tough.Yesterdays 13.1 mile journey was dedicated 100% to Kyle's mom. On the back of my bib I taped my profile picture and wrote "run with your heart not with your legs". That's exactly what we did. We ran with our hearts. I will never forget the way I felt yesterday.Thank you Mama B for the inspiration, motivation, support & endless love.Love you, Baby B oxxo
