Well, today is my last day to be 14. I will remember all my new friends and my old ones. It was great to be 14 with all the family, friends, memories, experiences, growth, and finding out who I am and who I want to be in life.14 was where I think I diescovered myself.
When I'm 15...
I want 15 to be filled with adventure, friends, and family.
I want to be runner, because running isn't a sport. It's a lifestyle.
In running, your biggest competitor is yourself.
In running, you have to do hard things and push through even though it hurts.
In running you set goals. Goals to improve, to grow stronger, to find who you are.
As soon as you complete a goal you make a new one.
In running you are never "Good Enough," because you can always be better.
It's the same with life.
You stride for better hoping for excellence, but that is one goal you can never achieve.
Which just makes me want it even more.
"Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize." 1 Corinthians 9:25-27
