To keep your focus and hold conviction when the world is pounded at your door is the start of breaking boundaries to new discoveries. As of late I have had a few questions from friends and family regarding my runs. My reply, “why, well because it’s fun and challenging. I am also training a lot to get stronger. Why Ireland? I love Ireland it is beautiful”. I then turn the question around. “Why not explore new interests and see what is out there in the world? Maybe you are passionately in love with something, but you never gave it a shot”.

Everyday I want to sleep and wake to live my dreams. New dreams begin as fulfilled ones blossom. We are not a business card or a box of limitations. Everything is possible! Who cares if it doesn’t make sense? If it stirs your lips to smile and your heart to dance, it might just be worth fighting for it. I leave my house dark and early to train. I thought I would be tired from the running though I am finding my strength in mind and body growing the more I push myself. I want to do it, be it and make them see that we live in the lies of our limitations.

There is so much along the horizon, but we have to move toward it. Shadows of doubt will always surface this is the test of the bold. Can you believe it to achievement? ‘You are not strong enough they say. You will be injured’. NO I disagree, I will allow my frustration drive my ability to create. I will run faster and I will push harder. I believe in me. I love feeling shutdown, it is the fuel that gets me over that cliff to pull up. I’ve got this and I will not wait for my moment to pass. I will go so fast that the plane shoots off into the stars.
