"Para correr no solo se ocupa un par de piernas, sino un inmenso corazón". Hoy ya no pude más, el dolor en la rodilla no me deja. Ya sino se me arregla con rehabilitación y las inyecciones en la rodilla, a ¡CIRUGÍA OTRA VEZ! y si ni así, tendré que dejar de correr.
Por lo pronto, hasta que reviente la rodilla. ¡FORZA Runners! Hay que hacer que la aguja suba nuevamente. ¡Vámonos!

•YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE •
What an incredible transformation I have had in just a year! I wanted this to be a strong message portraying that it didn’t happen over night. In fact, it pretty much took me a year to get to where I wanted to be.....that is, strong enough to run my First Marathon. This is reality and I worked very hard day in and day out to not only get back in to Running shape but to be the best Mommy to my son. Motherhood and Fitness went hand in hand for me and it made me a better person all together. It just wasn’t all about me but I found my balance and made it work! No matter what postpartum stage you are at just please always remember that YOU ARE ENOUGH! .
••EMBRACE the Journey: MY Journey was in no way shape or form PERFECT. Let’s be real here, it was tough, exhausting, overwhelming but also extremely rewarding! I apologize if I made it seem easy or picture perfect as there were just as many downs as there were ups. I’m here for a reason as I always stayed on my own path and loved it for all it’s worth. .
••LIFE is not a Competition: The best thing I ever did for myself was letting go of what others were doing. It was so easy to see what the other mother runners were accomplishing at their postpartum stage and it only added unnecessary pressure. Seriously, for what? I was after one thing and that was getting to 26.2. I stuck with a plan and made myself my own competition everyday! .
••CHOOSE to be Goal-Oriented: Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles and failures would only act as motivation. Of course, there will be haters, doubters, non-believers, and there will be YOU, proving them wrong. It’s a part of life but never sell yourself short and do whatever it takes to reach whatever goals you have in mind. .
For all the new moms out there, athletes starting over from recovering from injuries or setbacks, individuals striving to lose weight and better their health, and anyone starting a new training plan, PLEASE take a moment to give yourself some recognition that you are starting somewhere and will continue to thrive in what you choose to do!
