On April 17, 2008 I wrote this as my memoir:
“Determined to succeed at my goals”
It was days after my first marathon and my 30th birthday. I now go back to those words and that race report.
I am determined to succeed at my goals! And in the past five years I have succeeded at so much that sometimes I forget to stop and give myself some credit. In the past five years I have conquered & survived cancer, my dog has conquered cancer, I have moved away from a marriage that wasn't right, I have purchased my very own home, I have passed 6 of the 7 exams to become an Architect, I have found the love of my life, I have nurtured friendships, I have excelled at my career, I am now coaching runners, I have completed 25 full marathons, I have kept my smile, I have kept my goals in front of me.
I will continue to be determined to succeed at my goals. Come along on my journey.
