Fearless - a BIG word that represents BIG dreams for me and I know so many other women.
We all have secrets that we've worked really hard to keep hidden in deep dark spaces in our souls. The trouble is that those secrets haunt us! They keep us up at night and wake us up with a tightness in our chest in the morning. Those secrets don't go away and they don't just disappear; we have to attack them every single day as though our life depends on it - because it does.
For me, those demons are only silenced when I hit the streets and RUN!! When I'm not able to run, those demons are freaking loud and obnoxious and overbearing. Mark my word though, I'm not running from those demons, I'm running after them and chasing them down one step at at time. With each mile, I claim the control that I have over those demons; I become stronger than them. With each training run, I overcome those demons and reclaim the FEARLESS ME that I was perfectly designed to live.
For the last year, I have not been able to run due to injury. During that time, those demons became really loud and obnoxious and so overbearing that there were times when I just stayed in my pajamas all day and fought hard to resist the urge to crawl up in a ball and just cry in the fetal position. I really wanted to RUN AWAY because I had no way of running after them!!
I know I'm not alone. There are many women battling demons every single day. Sometimes they win and sometimes they lose.
My adult life has been dedicated to helping women battle their demons and prove to themselves that they are in control of them.
I am so excited to be able to raise money for and represent an organization that does just that!! 261 Fearless represents everything that I stand for and so much more. It's a global organization that is working to empower women world-wide to experience the freedom and fearlessness that comes from running towards those demons and attacking them one step at a time.
My training for the Boston Marathon is dedicated to all of you women out there that are just like me - with demons that need to be hunted down and overcome. My training is dedicated to helping you become the FEARLESS YOU that you were perfectly designed to live.
