I am committed to running a race every year. I specifically enjoy races that raise fund for various health causes. As a nurse it is imperative that I give back. In addition to helping raise funds I enjoy running because it allows me to stay in shape and challenge myself.
The Women’s Half Marathon in 2014 was an awesome race!The feeling of fresh air blowing on your face while listening to great music helped me forget how heavy my legs felt…lol. I pushed myself and didn’t stop for water until after mile 5. Hydrated the night before and early in the morning helped. I was able to beat by 5K time.
When I reached the finish line another runner told me how she used me to stay motivated. It’s amazes me how sometimes people don’t realize how much of an impact you can have on others. I am so happy I was able to help someone else through such a tough race.
I recommend setting goals and trying your best to achieve them. This year I’ve accomplished so many…next up mastering diving this summer. Wish me luck and Stay Tuned!
