Get out of your comfort zone. Do something new. Your mind and body will thank you.

Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.

It all began with a baby....and a few encouraging friends. The baby is the reason I started....and for more than just one reason. :) Part of the reason I continue, is because of the baby, but also for what it has helped me to discover about myself and my life, beyond fitness and health.

Why did I start working out? I started because I needed and wanted to lose weight, tone up and get healthy. It's become one of my favorite things to do!

Just ran a one mile PB last night and was totally shocked.  My mind has been boggled and amazed several times this past year as I've done things I didn't know I could physically do.

10 mile run; The more I run the more I love my body. Not because it's perfect, far from it, but because with every mile it is proving to me that I am capable of more than I ever thought possible.

I may not be the strongest I may not be the fastest but I'll be damned if I'm not trying my hardest. #fitnesselevation #followmyjourney #raisethebar #fitness #health

The whole reason why I did my first half. Don't ever tell me I can't do anything! "When someone tells you you can't, turn around and say 'watch me'"
