Claim your journey!

Sunday, July 01, 2012

Earlier today I posted a blog on the ICEdot Athletes page bearing the same title. In that post I talked about how we take for granted how far we've come. It's important that we celebrate our victories no matter how small. Where do you want to be? Are you going with the flow or have you claimed your journey? To read the post in its entirety and see a nice video, click on the link:

SparkPeople is a place that has many success stories and journeys. Do you consider yourself to be a success? I sure hope so! You may be going through a rough time or recovering from injury, but you must claim your success! If you haven't, this is the perfect time!

I will be sad to see June go. It was a special month for me. I celebrated my 2-year Runiversary, volunteered at 3 races including one on National Trails Day, enjoyed National Running Day with friends, ran my first race in Louisiana, and became President-Elect for my running club on my birthday. What a month!

They say I was preaching on National Running Day

    Happy Runniversary!! June was a fantastic month for you!

I was out of town with friends over the weekend. I was feeling badly b/c I only had time to squeeze in 10 miles on Saturday before our day started. Everyone else was impressed. So, it's all about perspective!

Happy 4th!

    Wonderful month it sounds like! We each do have our own journey and we do need to claim it and remember it and cherish it, even when there are ups and downs, because the journey is what shapes us and the roads we pick into the future is what shapes the journey. It's a beautiful thing!
