I just wanted to show you all something that came in the mail for me yesterday! 🙂
Yes! 🙂 You see how it’s all crumpled? That’s because I read it and jumped up and started screaming and jumping around! 🙂 And as if that’s not awesome ENOUGH:
It’s a medal! For fourth place! And it’s personalized! This is like my biggest achievement in my entire life! 🙂 I feel like I have finally accomplished something that I can really be proud of! 🙂 I am just so excited about this! 🙂
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! 🙂
Okay. I’m done with that little spiel! 🙂
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! 🙂 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! 🙂
So what’s the thing you are most proud of at this point in your life?
