Nike Women's Marathon 2013

“Drum sound rises on the air, it’s throb, my heart. A voice inside says, “I know you’re tired, but come. This is the way.” ~ Rumi   When the world says “give up”. Faith whispers “Try one more time”.  Hours of training, dedication, sweat, pain, sacrifice, renewal, determination and perseverance…..I Believed! This IS the way!!!! Life.

October 20th, 2013 ~ San Francisco Nike Women’s Marathon
“I’ve learned that finishing a marathon isn’t just an athletic achievement. It’s a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible.” From Holy hills, a frost bit hand, and sharp pain in my hip, this race proved to be the hardest yet most enlightening challenge, both physically and mentally, of my Life.  ‘Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it!!!!!!  The girl who started the marathon is not the same who finished.

‘The marathon is a charismatic event. It has everything. It has drama. It has competition. It has camaraderie. It has heroism… Somehow, some way I pushed through in Faith and found a new personal greatness!!! MY marathon PR: 26.2 miles, 3 hours 37 minutes.  Whatever you do, whether you are content where you are, or you strive for more, do not forget the lessons you have learned in your journey.  After all, it is not necessarily they goal you must pursue, instead savour the time it takes you to get there!  Take pride in how far you have come. Have Faith in how far you can go. And remember to enjoy the journey!!!! xx Believe and you will Become!!!
