I can't believe I am actually saying this, but tomorrow is my first 5k race. I can't tell you how excited I am about this! I've been writing on New Year's resolution lists for about the past 5 years that I would run a race and finally I am doing it. I have a friend, Andrea, to thank because she actually inspired me. Seeing her progress and achievements made me want to push myself and believe I actually can do this. I know I sound mellow dramatic, but this race symbolizes allot to me. I "had" a major procrastination problem. I always say I am going to do things and I never pull through, or I give up half way. I just proved to myself, that if I decide something, and work towards it and match my mind with my body, the sky is the limit! Not just for our physical, but also spiritual, mental and emotional! Our biggest obstacle in life is ourselves! For anyone reading this who dreams of living a healthy lifestyle, say to your self right now, "From now on I will change" and you will! Whatever your dreams may be, go for it, the sky is the limit! Live looking for a balance between all areas of your life, and make the changes necessary, it's all about your attitude! Tell life... BRING IT!
