Saturday morning I got this text.....
It immediately put a smile on my face because my mission in life is to make everyone love running as much as I do ;)
Then as we continued to chat my friend told me she had plans to run a race every month like I did last year...and this made me smile even bigger :)
Then she said this....me? an inspiration? Really? Couldn't be...I'm just a normal person who spent her life savings on race entries last year ;)
And then this...she tells me that I am the reason she is doing this...I am the reason she decided to take a chance and push herself to do things she never thought possible...and I can't even begin to tell you how incredible that feels.
Cue all the tears....
I'm not sure this friend of mine knew exactly how much I needed to hear that, but I did. Sometimes in life you forget that you could be inspiring someone by setting a goal and doing whatever it takes to accomplish it. Last year was physically (and sometimes emotionally) tough...but knowing that I inspired even just one person made it all worth it. So to my friend....a RUNNER....thank you for sharing this with me...and just remember YOU are an inspiration and I can't wait to cheer you on every step of the way :)
