When I graduated college, I didn’t know what to do with myself as far as fitness goes. I grew up playing team sports and hit a wall on the next step. Going to the gym everyday and doing the typical circuit routine wasn’t cutting it.
So, I decided to follow what others do when they graduate. I ran a few 5k’s, purchased a road bike, and started to pursue becoming a triathlete to eventually compete in an Iron Man. The summer I purchased my road bike, I trained for the 150 mile Bike MS ride to begin my endurance journey. After completing the ride I started to look into training for the Boston Marathon, but got sidetracked by a new fitness program-CrossFit.
Nine years later, I still have not completed a triathlon, nor have I run in a marathon. Every year I have the same excuses, consisting of “I don’t have time,” or “I’ll train next year.” It’s time that I stop making excuses and start chipping away at my goals. The opportunity to be able to represent Cathedral High School and raise funding for students who have a bright future has opened up a new door to a community I am very excited to be apart of. The opportunity to run for Team Cathedral has provided a new future for me in charity work in giving back to the community and making a difference. Being able to accomplish a lifetime goal while raising money for students at Cathedral High School is too good to be true. I am looking forward to an amazing journey and being able to impact the CHS community in a big way!!!
