As children, we grow up learning and believing there are simply things that we can and cannot do. If we say something enough, we start to believe it. I've always said that I wasn't an athlete. Never athletic. I'd never be able to do something that took stamina, endurance and strength.
9/19/12 is the day I broke the rules that I set in place for myself. The day I said no more. The day I believed what I told my children applied to me too...you can do anything you want to. You just have to try.
Now that our new addition has made her debut, I am about to head back to the pavement. The place I have found a piece of me that I never believed could exist.
I'm out to get it all.
And best of all...
I finally believe I can.
