"I know what I want to do when I grow up! I want to be a Cross Country Athlete!" - Toni McAlister

   I'm sure every athlete has an amazing story of the kind of person they become and challenges they overcome as they push themselves to the next level humanly possible to attain their goals. There are others who just do something, anything and find the goals in the process. That "others" would be me. I ran for many reasons but the goal was never to go into training to become a Cross Country Runner! It was originally about control and faithfulness and it has developed into something much greater than character!
   Today I made a choice, a decision, a declaration! I want to go into training to be a Cross Country Athlete! I want to train for marathons! I'm putting my game face on now, I now know I can be faithful. I know some where within me is a true runner waiting to come out and not just peaks out here and there, its time, its time to unleash what is true within me!

I did not run today.

I had to take both my puppies to the hospital at 6:30 am. and didn't come home till 4:30 pm. Interesting day.
That being said, I proved to myself that I was commited to some form of fitness training. I wanted to be able to get in some sort of activity so my body gets used to the pattern that daily you can expect this and I did. I went swimming at 8pm. doing laps and focused on change. Here we go!


  1. In addition...I wonder if Erin timing yesturdays run sparked this? No matter, lets "Get ur Done!"

  2. oh, just to clarify there is a difference between road running and cross country. Cross country is like in the woods and trails and road running is usually like was 5k's and marathons etc. I'm gonna do both and call myself a runner :-) Yeah!
