Who Has Helped You In Your Journey – Share The Love!

Hi friends! I hope every one has had a great 2015 so far…is it just me or is it craziness that we are already half way into February? Man, time flies! I have been busy, busy lately but LOVING life! December last year (December 16th to be exact) I decided I was going to stop working just to get by and pursue my love of health/wellness/fitness. I decided 2015 was going to be my best year yet. There are so many opportunities that I have taken advantage of that are allowing me to continue on this amazing path of doing what I love as a career. And there are so many more that are coming my way! There are a lot of people to thank for all the blessings in my life right now, but sometimes I think I forget I need to give myself credit too. It has taken a lot of hard work, trial and error and frustration to be where I am but it has all been worth it – and I am just getting started. I have BIG things planned for the future so I am sure I will be going through all of those things again and again but that is all a part of the process, right?

How often do you take time out of your day to appreciate yourself, and give yourself credit for all your accomplishments? How often do you reach out and let people know that you appreciate them, and tell people thank you for the things they have done for you? One of my goals this year, and forever, is to do both of those things. I make sure to let everyone know how much they mean to me and thank them for helping me a long the way. Maybe it is little things, like when my bf feeds the kids (cats) in the morning when I am at Kaia, running or at work. Or bigger things, like my long time friends taking a chance on me and offering me a great position at a great company.

I think it is my positivity, dedication and passion for helping people that has helped me reach many of my goals. As a runner, I have been very lucky to be an ambassador for many races and running/fitness brands. Part of being an ambassador is giving back to the running community. So now we get to what this post is all about: Tell me who has helped you in your fitness journey. I want to know what your goals were, or are, who has helped you along the way. What have they done? How did they get involved? I will be picking 2 people at random and sending them a pair of Feetures! socks for them and their friend. As an Ambassador for Feetures! it is a small way I can give back to the running community.

Leave a comment and tell me your story!

  1. I feel similarly – I decided 2015 was going to be my best year yet, and so far it has been. It’s been very hectic and stressful too, but there’s been so much good as well.

    As far as my health and fitness journey goes, I decided in 2015 to hire a running coach. At first I scoffed at the idea – I needed to drum up the determination to reach my goals on my own, I’m a middle/back-of-the-pack runner, etc. But then I ran out of excuses and found myself wondering how to tackle speed work without injuring myself, or how to really improve my training in a smart way. I’m working with Jesica of rUnladylike and it is hands down the best decision I’ve made for my running journey.

    (I also wanted to say that I stumbled on your blog the other day and immediately added it to Feedly. I’m moving to the Bay Area next month – see my note about hectic and stressful above! – and I was looking for new regional reads to check out. Hope to run into you at a race this year!)

    • That’s awesome! Where are you moving from? I’m glad you like my blog & I’m sure we will run into each other at a race one of these days!

      • I’m coming from Columbus, Ohio (though I’m not from Ohio originally). It’s a pretty big change since my fiancé and I are both from the East Coast but we are excited too 🙂 I can’t wait to have a break from the snow and cold!

      • What is your new address? I’ll send some Feetures! socks your way! You can send it to me through my contact section.

  2. My fiance, Ben, is a big part of my fitness journey. He’s the one who got me into running and racing. He helps me out so much in my training – pacing me, carrying water (until I found Simple Hydration), helping me create my training plans, and doing whatever I needed him to do so that I could go out and run. Whenever I set a big goal, he encourages and supports me. He believes in my abilities more than I do, so I got a lot of confidence from him, especially in the beginning when I couldn’t fathom ever running faster than an 8:00 mile. He wisely predicted that I would run a 7 min mile one day. Which I did, one year later.
