Why do I PUSH

I push myself harder everyday. Going hard is the only way to get the results I want, the only way to reach my full potential. If you do the same things you will stay in the same place. In 2008 when I was over 400 lbs I never thought I would be walking a mile, definitely didn't think I would be running a 5k New Years day 2010, by the end of year I had done five 5k's two 10k's one 10 miler a 6k and a Half Marathon. ALL done with no training at all (not a smart move by me) I had found my competitive spirit again . My mind, and heart were geared up for every race but my body wasn't. I felt the aches and pains for days and days.... Like I said, NOT A SMART MOVE. Fast Forward. Two months into 2011 and I am waiting for my calender to read March 20. Amped up for the Publix Ga 1/2 Marathon. This is my 2nd Half and now I am both mentally and physically prepared. I have done two 5k's this year and as of today says I have tagged a total of 79.44 miles since Jan 1, 2011 (two 5k's + 73.24 training miles) So now back to the question..... Why DO I PUSH ? I push myself so that I can be the best me I can be. Friends and Family I push you because I have been there. Having someone in your corner is a wonderful thing. Especially when that person has walked 13.1 miles in your shoes.

Thought of the day

Every second push harder, every minute dig deeper, every hour go further. If you do this every day you will be better.
