CHALLENGE YOURSELF

I've never been a fast runner, but I've always enjoyed distance running.  Maybe it's the feeling of accomplishing a goal mileage, but I think it's mainly because I like clearing my head.

When I was going through my brain injury rehab there were days I just wanted to clear my head and get my thoughts together.  Before the accident I use to do this by running or going for a motorcycle ride.  I wasn't able to do either of those things for a while, which was frustrating. 

Once I finished my rehab I was excited to hit the pavement and start building my muscle back up so I could attempt to run.  I then found out I needed an ankle surgery and about 4 more months of physical therapy.    

So when we rang in the 2019 new year I decided one of my resolutions was to run a 1/2 marathon.  I called my friend Zack and asked if he wanted to join.  I figured if I signed up and paid, I would hold myself accountable and push myself.  Never stop pushing yourself to grow.

Thank you Kori! It’s awesome that you’re starting to walk and hopefully enjoying some nice spring weather! I thought I might be setting myself up to fail with this run, but I figured if I set the goal high. If I couldn’t do the run, at least I pushed myself to try and even if I got 1 block it was more then I was able to do before. We always pushed ourselves to achieve cool things, somethings never change. Go team!

Get it girl! I think it’s the Mom in me but I have to tell you that I’m proud of you. You are one of the toughest chicks I know and you constantly inspire me. I just started getting myself going on walks again because like you said, it’s just a way I like to clear my head and reflect. I hope one day I will be up to doing a half marathon. ❤️
