Me & Jesse
I am always trying to encourage people to go after there dreams. I love being a Race Director, and so involved in the running community because it enables me to be able to do this. With Leona Divide right around the corner, and now one of the biggest Ultras in California I wanted to send some encouragement to all my runners who are participating, my volunteers, & my amazing crew of staff that will be on hand(150 volunteers what up!!??) Understand to achieve anything requires faith & belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, & sheer dedication. You make things happen. Don't wait for someone else to make them happen for you. Act on your belief and instincts and the things you know about yourself. Don't just sit there-do something! Forward is always the right direction, even if you aren't sure where you are going, as long as you act with integrity. Only you know who you want to be, what you want out of life, and what the right path could be for you. Listen to your gut, and celebrate who you really are, apart from anyone else's expectations. Keep your word, act on your beliefs, and whether you regret something or not, ALWAYS own up to it. Remember fear is temporary, but regret is absolutely forever.
When all is said and done at the end of every day I look around me, and am overwhelmed by the love & support I have. Life is about connections. If you have hurt someone apologize, take responsibility, and move on. Always forgive as every little thing happens for a reason...everything. Read this a few times....
You wont always know what's over the horizin, but you will get somewhere great if you stay focused and diligent on what you want. Even when something bad happens or a relationship falls apart you will always see why it happened later. I promise this fo' sure. Above is a picture of Jesse and I after a Duathalon last Saturday which he placed 3rd overall at!! So amazing! Blessed to have his friendship in my life! Jesse you have changed every aspect of my life for the absolute better, and are my best friend on the planet, and cannot believe life could ever be this fun!! Having a blast training like maniacs together!!
Always know life is great, amazing, and no matter what you are going through things always have a way of working themselves out. Push on every day, and set goals so high that while you are reaching them you obtain other ones as well. Remember to shoot for the moon cause even if you miss you'll land amongst the stars!! Below is a link of two of my most favorite people on the planet. It's funny because as of last September they were my friends, but I never would have imagined how important these two would play a role in my life, destiny, and where I am at today. You never know why certain people come into your life until all the pieces come together for one hell of a finale!! My dear friend Mike Murphy(my shimmesauce) posted it on you tube cause he is just fly like that...plus he is one of my other favorite people on the planet!!! Jimmy & Kate Freeman are two of the most kind & loyal people you will ever meet. They have not a single bad thing to say about anyone, and have nothing but love & motivation to give out to everyone they meet. I am blessed to call these two crazy cats my extended family, and love every minute I get to spend with them in our crazy nutty lives!!! As Jimmy Dean always says..."if you're not having fun you are doing it wrong"... word!!!!!
BRING IT ON LEONA DIVIDE 2011!!!!
