New learnings. I have been in Ghana for over a week now and I am realizing the power of the Internet and the Blog. I have met several Ghanaians who have come up to me and said “I have read your blog tell me more about your running”. I often forget about the blog so I am always surprised when people bring it up. I get slowly reminded of how powerful my little blog can be. I forget when a new young person googles “Dystonia” I may pop up. I forget that I am the little blog that can.
Life isn’t perfect nor is the Dystonia, but I do hope that when I write I can inspire someone new. I ran my first race of 2012 several weeks ago and it was amazing. I was shocked how hard a 10K felt, I was shocked I ran a marathon – 26.2 miles and then I remembered how amazing I can be. How amazing I am when I put my mind to something, in those moments I literally feel like I can move mountains. I often forget race day, but I am learning that I need to remember that feeling again of crossing the finish line….
So it took a trip to Ghana to remind me to write in my blog more often, to hope that people are still inspired by me and lastly to remind myself of how strong I am…and that no matter how many times I fall (and I will) what matters is how fast I get back up!
One thought on “May 2, 2012”
Very inspiring especially for documenting this victorious fight. Your blog and meeting you physically tells me how it is possible to fight anything that comes our way especially when we set our mind to it like you. May God continue to bless you as you’ve become a blessing to others.
Hope to run along side you in Ghana one day.
