This Blog is inspired by @runningbecause blog "A Letter to Myself"
Remember when you were lying in the hospital bed weighing 99 lbs and the Dr's told you that you would survive, but your quality of life would be less than it should be. After all, according to them, you were 39 yrs old - I was going down hill, right?
Remember how defiant you became to show them otherwise?
You didn't begin any workout/fitness routine until 8 yrs later. That same year you crossed the finish line in your first long distance race.
Remember how you felt at that moment? Never forget it.
When others have tried to define you by your awards, PR, race distance or speed - remember how you felt? You became defiant again to define your success on your terms, not by the opinions of others.
You see, Me - never forget those moments you had of victory at Hoover Dam, ET, Snow Canyon, Turkey Trot or others. And don't forget the feeling you had the day after Ladybug died or at RnRLV.
All those are the moments that have defined you - but in your way, on your terms.
Make 2012 about what you want in your career. Never forget the Me.
Afterall, you are only 50 yrs old.
