Almost exactly seven years ago, I faced one of my biggest personal challenges. I completed my first marathon. Leading up to the race, I logged just over 500 miles of training. Those miles gave me strength, clarity and inspired me to become a better person to myself and those around me. Since that day on Sunday, November 20, 2005 I have forever changed.
Fast forward to now, Tuesday, November 27, 2012 I’m at another crossroads in my life. I’m beginning a new journey and training for a new marathon. However, this marathon does not require endurance or physical ability but requires the same determination, hope, strength and presererevance. It’s the marathon of living life fully. My commitment to myself to bridge the gap between my personal passions and my professional strengths by serving others.
This day marks my new beginning. Yoga teacher, spin instructor and part-time employee at Marathon Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine. The training has just begun and I already could not feel anymore alive. The journey ahead of me will be tough and humbling, as it always is, but I will let the roads keep me focused, inspired and full of passion. This is what makes training and running marathons all worthwhile.
