Sacrifice…

As a single mom I’ve got a lot to say about sacrifice. In fact I believe any mom in general would have a lot to say about this subject. But honestly with all the things I try to manage in my life it does require tons and tons of it. For instance this morning I did my morning run, a 7 miler and my body felt so depleted of nutrients that it was a horrible run. I have a running/fitness photo shoot on Saturday and I am watching what I eat so closely it gets pretty scary… But doing these fitness photos do require me to be like this to prepare so I have to make that sacrifice of alot of good foods to look a certain way… This is really hard for me to manage with my running but I am the supermom/superhero and I am determined to get things done to accomplish my goals! But I do look forward to breaking from these shoots for a little while after this one until my marathon is done… That is unless something spectatular comes up. The fitness modeling is important to me but my running and getting to Boston is whats most important in my heart…

I talked with a friend of mine in the gym today and she said “I get to work by 5 am and I see you on facebook, I wonder if you ever sleep”… I thought to myself I do sacrifice alot of sleep for my passion of running. Never in a million years would I have imagined my life would be as it is today! I wake up at 4:30 am get my son to my moms, then go run, then get online and work…. I get ready for work at my REAL job for 8 to 9 hours then I workout or run again, come home and do my duties as a mom then I work til probably mid night…. But I do love my life and my passions for life and running! As I have gotten older I understand more and more of my purposes in life. But ultimately I do know that sacrificing is unfortunately a part of achieving my dreams…
