Inspiration #1

Recently I've really started to notice the impact of others' examples on my life and my choices. I have been blessed to come in contact with many incredibly inspiring individuals, and so I'd like to dedicate this entry to one of those individuals.

Last Saturday, my dad and I ran in the Achievable Dream, an 8k charity/Masters Track and Field Championship race. An 8k is just out of my comfort zone, but I survived, and it was a really fun race! There were at least 1500 runners of all skill levels and ages, which brings me to the inspirational individual I want to mention: Pat. Pat is 84, the oldest member of the Colonial Road Runners, and she ran an 8k. EIGHTY-FOUR. GOOD GRIEF. I want to be fit when I'm 84. I want to live well now so that I can prevent all avoidable mobility or health issues. I was so impressed with Pat; she is certainly a motivation to eat right and exercise! If Pat can do it, I can do it!

I'd also like to be able to play ball like Uncle Drew!

  1. I was thinking along the same lines this week! I have a post half written about how my friends are amazing. Great minds think alike!
