Winning Spiel


I just wanted to show you all something that came in the mail for me yesterday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes! ๐Ÿ™‚ You see how it’s all crumpled? That’s because I read it and jumped up and started screaming and jumping around! ๐Ÿ™‚ And as if that’s not awesome ENOUGH:

It’s a medal! For fourth place! And it’s personalized! This is like my biggestย achievementย in my entire life! ๐Ÿ™‚ I feel like I have finally accomplished something that I can really be proud of! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am just so excited about this! ๐Ÿ™‚

And the other awesome thing is that this medal makes me look back and realize how much I have improved in my own PERSONAL running. Also, it gives me momentum to keep striving for better! I truly hope that at some point in each of your lives, you can win a medal for something that you truly care about, be it a race, or a speech tournament, or a basketball game! Winning is awesome. But it’s even better when it really means something to you and when it’s something you’ve worked for! ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay. I’m done with that little spiel! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I did 10 100-meter sprints with my brother and a friend. It was awesome. When I do sprints by myself I don’t run as fast, but when I’m doing sprints with a 5′ 10″ guy as my competition? That’s when I actually SPRINT! So I definitely got my workout for the day! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love working out with guys cause they are super tough and fast and athletic and when I work out with them I get BETTER! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

So what’s the thing you are most proud of at this point in your life?

    At this point in my life, the thing I’m most proud of is my little gal. Every moment of my life up to now has prepared me for her so I’m grateful for all the living I’ve done ๐Ÿ™‚
