the beginning of the end

This upcoming weekend marks the beginning of the end of my track career. My first indoor meet is this weekend, and for the first time in a long time I am more excited than nervous. One con (or pro depending on how you look at things) is that the sport of track & field is fundamentally a mental sport. Your mindset for those 10- 60 seconds of your race are going to make or break you. And for me, my nerves tend to get the best of me. There are those who feed off that anxiety, feed off that adrenaline and use it in their race. I am not one of those people. I'm the kind of person who likes to be relaxed and carefree. And I like to have people behind me, people who have faith in me, people who believe in me. Although those who are doubtful can sometimes push me to prove them wrong, to do that much better, it always helps when I know I have people backing me up, who are gonna be there for me at the finish line whether I win or loose. Not only are they gonna be there, they are gonna be proud of me because they know how much work I put in everyday..sweat and tears, literally. It's tough to always go out there with a great mindset, to say the least, but obviously not impossible. I am more than ready to compete and I know I have the support of my teammates, family, and friends. So, like I said before, I am more excited than nervous and I am definitely ready to GET IT  IN. wish me luck ♥

"life is too short"
Its amazing how easily we forget the value of life. We have been given a gift, the most precious gift we could be given: life. Most of us go through each day with memories of the past, an agenda for the day, and plans for the future. But the future is not promised, this life is not promised. Sometimes, its weird, its like we know what we need to do but often postpone doing it. I don't know why bad things happen to good people and others manage to escape hardships and accidents without so much as a scratch. Each year, as I get older, I realize such is life, and its not always fair. My heart breaks every time someone I care about is a victim of this thing we call life. I guess it can be a blessing and a curse. We all can continue to reiterate how much we should spend time with loved ones, how much we should live life to the fullest, etc...but it doesnt mean anything unless we actually do it. The best and the worst part about this "life" is that it doesn't stop, for anyone. We cant pause, rewind, or fast forward. All we can say or do is attempt to live in the now, love God and those around me and hope that time really does heal. My love goes out to those I hold dear to my heart.

Happy New Year!!

1. 1. 11
Happy New Year Everyone! 
(yea, im a little late.)
Welcome to 2011!



I hear a lot of people on one of two extremes. Either they are really amped about making new years resolutions, emphasizing that the next will be brand new, or they are criticizing those making resolutions, saying they are keep doing what they already do, that no one is really gonna be "brand new,". I'm not too much of an extremist...im more of a middle ground kinda gal...so I can empathize with both parties. I think you should do whatever you were doing, but do it better. And if you don't like what you were doing before, make plans to change how, where, why or what you are doing so you can become a happier, better you. So happy new year, lets make it better than the last.
