March Madness - Day 1

When given a challenge, how do you respond?

Option 1: Accept it and work towards your WIN
OR
Option 2: Avoid it and let the idea DEFEAT you

What even is a challenge?

Dictionary.com defines 'challenge' as "a call or summons to engage in any contest, as of skill, strength, etc." It also defines 'challenge' as "difficulty in a job or undertaking that is stimulating to one engaged in it."

Before you allow DEFEAT to seep in, consider the advantages of embracing your challenge:

  • Challenges increase your confidence.
  • Challenges can create healthy habits in our lives. 
  • Challenges can allow us to learn more about ourselves.
  • Challenges often force us to grow outside our comfort zone. 
  • Challenges are not always easy, but are always worth the outcome.
  • Challenges really are not against anyone else. YOU and your own challenger.
This is your WINNING season so it's time to step up and challenge yourself. 

Stop waiting for life to happen to you. YOU make life happen. 

Stop making excuses for why things are changing in your life. YOU create the atmosphere for change to enter your space. 

Stop allowing fear to consume you. YOU are more than a conqueror. 

What are you waiting for? Challenge YOURSELF to something new. RIGHT NOW!!


Let me know what you will challenge yourself to. I want to walk with you, encourage you, uplift you, and celebrate with you!

As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
